Geraldine “Inchworm” Largay: Missing Since July 22, 2013. The last known photo of Largay.

From the Maine Warden Service: 
Two years ago tomorrow, Geraldine Largay from Brentwood, Tennessee was last seen on the early morning of July 22 at Poplar Lean-to on the Appalachian Trail (AT) in Maine. She was planning to hike that day to Spaulding Lean-to in Redington Township, approximately eight miles to the north. The following day, July 23, she had planned to continue hiking north from Spaulding Lean-to located in Mount Abram Township to meet her husband who was waiting for her at the Route 27 crossing. Geraldine never arrived at that location.

Still today, Maine game wardens, searchers from the Maine Association of Search and Rescue (MASAR), Maine State Police, and the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department continue to work together strategizing the search for Geraldine Largay. Maine game wardens continue to plan future search efforts and will include areas  that have not previously had ground search resources. There have been no clues found to date that can be attributed to Largay in any of the searches that have taken place.

The Largay family continues to express gratitude to all the searchers and investigators who have taken the time to search for Gerry. The family is still in contact with Maine Warden Service investigators and is updated routinely about searches and any investigative leads regarding her disappearance. The attached photo is the last known photo of Geraldine taken at the Poplar Ridge Lean-to on July 22, 2013.

A reward in the amount to $25,000 remains available for anyone who can provide information to investigators that locates Geraldine Largay. Anyone who has any information that can lead to the location of Largay or has information about other hikers or persons in the area of Poplar Lean-to or the Oberton Stream area on the Appalachian Trail  on July 22, 2013, is asked to share the information with the Maine Warden Service by calling (207) 624-7076.
