Maine authorities search for missing Tenn. woman

SANDY RIVER PLANTATION, Maine (AP) -- About 60 searchers and a Maine Forest Service helicopter are taking part in the search for a Tennessee woman who went missing while hiking the Appalachian Trail.

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 didn't leave a name and wardens are asking that woman to come forward.

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.
