Search continues for Tenn. hiker missing in Maine

CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine - About 30 searchers are heading back out to look for a Tennessee woman who disappeared from the Appalachian Trail in Maine.

Wardens say 66-year-old Geraldine Largay of Brentwood, Tenn., was supposed to meet her husband a week ago in Maine but never showed up.

Monday's search area encompasses about 80 square miles. Crews include Maine game wardens, Mahoosuc Search and Rescue, U.S. Border Patrol and the Maine Forest Service.

With a chance of thunderstorms, authorities say it is unlikely aircraft will be used.

Largay had started her hike in April at Harpers Ferry, W.Va., with a destination of Baxter State Park in Maine.
