Family of missing Tenn. hiker leaves Maine

CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine (AP) - The family of a Tennessee woman who went missing while hiking the Appalachian Trail in western Maine last month is returning home, but not giving up hope.

Meanwhile, the Maine Warden Service says the search for 66-year-old Geraldine Largay of Brentwood, Tenn., will continue.

Largay's husband, George, and daughter, Kerry Bauchiero, returned home on Tuesday to start planning a memorial service.

George Largay tells WMTW-TV (http://bit.ly/15D8XhF ) that his wife was well-prepared for the arduous hike, which he says was on her bucket list. She had read multiple books and planned meticulously.

He had been following in his car and had last seen her on July 21 near the town of Rangeley.

Largay's daughter thanked Maine law enforcement and volunteers for their efforts in finding her mother.
