CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine (AP) - About 130 people, some with dogs, horses, ATVs and aircraft, have been searching for a Tennessee woman who disappeared while hiking the Appalachian Trail in Maine.

Maine Warden Service Corp. John MacDonald said Saturday investigators have made contact with hikers as they try to determine if 66-year-old Geraldine Largay was seen in an area of western Maine between two shelters.

It's been sunny with temperatures in the low 80s as searchers, among them wardens, forest rangers, horseback teams, the U.S. Border and Civil Air patrols, look for Largay.

Largay, of Brentwood, Tenn., was supposed to meet her husband Monday but never showed up.

Her husband told wardens that he was keeping track of her along the way, and making pre-determined stops to resupply her.

Largay, an experienced hiker with no previous incidents, started her hike on the Appalachian Trail in April at Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. Her final destination was Baxter State Park.

She texted her husband Sunday, saying she was on top of Saddleback Mountain. The next day, she texted him that she was headed north along the trail.

The 5-foot-5, 115-pound Largay was last seen wearing a black pullover shirt, tan pants, a blue hat and a black-and-green backpack.
