Maine Warden Service Corp. John MacDonald said Saturday that investigators need to speak with the hikers to determine if 66-year-old Geraldine Largay, of Brentwood, Tenn., was seen between the Poplar Ridge Lean-To and the Spaulding Mountain Lean-To parts of the trail. Bear baiters in the area have been asked to be on the lookout for her.
The 5-foot-5, 115-pound Largay, an experienced hiker, was supposed to meet her husband on Monday in Wyman Township in western Maine but never showed up. She was last seen wearing a black pullover shirt, tan pants, a blue hat and a black-and-green backpack.
Hikers adopt trail names, and investigators want to talk to hikers who use the names "Cowboy," ''Marathon," Postman," ''Breeze," ''Paranoid," ''Crunchmaster," ''Harpo/Groucho," ''Ice Pack/SOBO '13," ''Luke 11:9," ''Sandman," ''BBTGR" and ".com/Queen."
Largay uses "Inchworm."
