Missing AT Hiker Geraldine Largay

The search for missing Appalachian Trail hiker Gerry "Inchworm" Largay was suspended months ago.

Interest in her story, however, has increased since the TV program North Woods Law ran an episode (season three, episode nine) titled, "Lost and Found" on the Animal Planet network on Thursday, December 11, 2013.

The show is described as "A new class of wardens train for the most demanding part of their job: search and rescues. On the Appalachian Trail a hiker vanishes and the wardens lead one of largest search and rescue operations in Maine's history to find her."

Thanks to our friends at, we understand the program will be re-aired on Animal Planet on December 19, 2013 at 8 PM ET. That episode should be in rotation afterward.

As was clearly stated by the Maine Warden Service during the initial search, people do not just disappear. Something happened to Gerry Largay.

Question. Did the Maine Wardens ever check to see if there were any car rentals out of Rangeley at that time ? I ask because I had an older woman dressed in hiking clothes ask me to take a picture of her ( using her camera ) at Height of Land. Struck me odd, and actually commented to family at the time, that a hiker, dressed in hiking clothes ,was driving a car.

You should definitely contact the Maine state police if you think it may have been her.

It is now May 4th, 2017..and I just watched North Woods Law rerun..was wondering if there has there been any updates on Gerry Largay, the missing 66 year old hiker? I always thought that hiking was like diving in the should use the buddy system. Why were these older folks walking these trails alone to begin with?

Please disregard my previous post as just found out Gerry Largay's remains were found 2 years after she went missing, but am still curious as to why these middle-aged folks are hiking by themselves?
