    (NASHVILLE) Skeletal remains, clothing and possessions found in a wooded area of East Central Maine this week are consistent with those of missing hiker and Brentwood resident Geraldine Largay, the Maine Warden Service announced Friday.

    Largay, 66, disappeared while hiking the Appalachian Trail in Franklin County. She was last seen early on the morning of July 22, 2013 at Poplar Ridge Lean-to in Redington Township, about 65 miles northwest of Showhegan.

    I have been following this case since it first broke two years ago. I find it interesting that cadaver dogs were searching within 100 yards and failed to find her. I realize that winds and other things can affect their ability to pick up a scent, but that seems pretty close to me.

    I am glad they found her, but this one is so sad to me!

    She was alone, though that wasn’t originally the plan. Her hiking companion had had an emergency that called her home early from their adventure. She was hiking the Appalachian Trail in remote western Maine, a difficult stretch. But everything seemed to be going okay — until she vanished without a trace.

    Geraldine Largay, known as Inchworm on the trail, made national headlines when she disappeared in July 2013. The Maine Warden Service launched a massive search for her that continued for days, then weeks, then months. For more than a year, they followed leads.

    Then in October 2015, her remains were found, startlingly close to the trail.

    Maine author Denis Dauphinee is now giving voice to the last days of Largay’s life. His newest book, “When You Find My Body: The Disappearance of Geraldine Largay on the Appalachian Trail,” is published by Down East Books.
