The case of the deceased hiker who went missing from the Appalachian Trail in Maine in 2013 gets curiouser and curiouser with news of Geraldine Largay’s journal.
On May 25, 2016, in response to formal Freedom of Information Act requests from several major news agencies, the Maine Warden Service released over 1,500 pages of documents related to the search which began after Gerry Largay, 66, seemingly vanished on July 22, 2013.
The most astonishing news, thus far, pertained to a journal attributed to the hiker from Tennessee known as “Inchworm.” Dated entries indicate Largay made notes for 26 days after she supposedly left the Trail that she had been hiking all the way from Harpers Ferry, WV, to urinate and got lost.
Later, information released says Geraldine Largay attempted to send text messages almost a dozen times to her husband from higher ground. She evidently did not get a strong enough signal for her cell phone, contents of which were retrieved by authorities.
