SANDY RIVER PLANTATION, Maine (AP) -- Maine authorities are continuing their search for a Tennessee woman who went missing while hiking the Appalachian Trail.
A spokesman for the Maine Warden Service says 66-year-old Geraldine Anita Largay of Brentwood, Tenn., was supposed to meet her husband Monday in Wyman Township in western Maine, but never showed up.
Wardens learned that on Wednesday, an employee of a nearby motel received a call from a female hiker who said she had spent Tuesday night with Largay in a lean-to on the trail.
She did not leave a name and wardens are asking that woman to come forward.
Authorities say they will continue their search for Largay on Friday.
The 5-foot-5, 115-pound Largay was last seen wearing a black pullover shirt, tan pants, a blue hat and a black-and-green backpack.
