[UPDATE] The Search Continues for Missing Tenn. Woman in Maine

Maine Warden Service

Maine Wardens are still searching for Geraldine Largay, the Tennessee woman who disappeared from the Appalachian Trail in Maine. She was last seen on July 21 on Route 4 near Rangeley in Sandy River Plantation.

The following was released tonight (July 30) from Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife:

The Maine Warden Service will continue search efforts this week. Due to limited professional search and rescue (SAR) organization availability during weekdays, we have begun to organize an intensified search strategy with the expected upcoming weekend resources. We have received considerable support for volunteer search assistance and we appreciate it greatly. The logistical and physical challenges associated with this remote search area restrict our ability to use searchers without formal training provided by professional SAR organizations.

Both the Commissioner of the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife and the Colonel of the Maine Warden Service will evaluate each coming day to determine the most appropriate direction in which to proceed and search for Geraldine Largay.

As we move forward, we will continue to field calls and investigate all leads. Wardens need help in finding the caller responsible for contacting the Stratton Motel on Wednesday, July 24 at approximately 5:00 PM. The unidentified female caller made a statement regarding “inchworm” (Geraldine Largay’s trail name) being overdue in meeting with her husband George.

If you made that phone call or if you can help us contact the person that did, we urge you to call the Augusta Public Safety Dispatch center at (207) 624-7076 or 1-800-452-4664 (Maine only).
