CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine (AP) -- The Maine Warden Service has narrowed the search area for a Tennessee hiker who disappeared from the Appalachian Trail in Maine.
Officials say the search area for 66-year-old Geraldine Largay of Brentwood, Tenn., was narrowed Monday to a 14-mile section of the trail in the Carrabassett Valley region of western Maine. Wardens believe the area of highest probability is a nine-mile section of the trail between Lone Mountain and a dirt road west of Sugarloaf Mountain.
Largay started her hike in April at Harpers Ferry, W.Va., with a destination of Mount Katahdin in Maine, the trail's northern terminus.
She was supposed to meet her husband a week ago but never showed up.
Monday's search crews include game wardens, Mahoosuc Search and Rescue, U.S. Border Patrol and the Maine Forest Service.
