CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine (NECN/NBC) - It's now been an entire week since anyone has seen or heard from Appalachian Trail hiker Gerry Largay, 66.

The retired nurse from Brentwood, Tenn. was supposed to meet up with her husband George last Tuesday near the Sugarloaf Ski Resort. But she never showed.

Search and Rescue Coordinator Lt. Kevin Adam says Largay spent Sunday July 21 at the Poplar Ridge Lean-to near Rangeley.

The next morning, Largay texted her husband to tell him she planned to spend Monday at Spaulding Mountain and would meet him at the Wyman Township parking lot where the Appalachian Trail crosses Route 27 on Tuesday.

She never turned up and Wardens and volunteers have been looking for her ever since.

"We've done hasty searches, stream searches, road searches, used planes and helicopters. It's like she just walked off and disappeared," says Adam.
