Crews narrow search for Tenn. hiker missing in Maine

Authorities in Maine said on Monday the search for a missing 66-year-old Tennessee hiker has been narrowed to a 14-mile section of the Appalachian Trail in the Carrabassett Valley region.

Geraldine Largay of Brentwood began her hike in April at Harpers Ferry, West Virginia with a destination of Mt. Katahdin in Maine.

Largary was supposed to meet her husband last week, but never arrived to her destination. She was last seen on July 21.

Several crews, including game wardens, Mahoosuc Search and Rescue, U.S. Border Patrol and the Maine Forest Service are all assisting in the search.

Largay was last seen wearing a black pullover shirt, tan pants, a blue hat and a black-and-green backpack.
