The body of missing hiker Geraldine Largay has likely been found, according to the Maine Warden Service. Skeletal remains were discovered in Redington Township Wednesday.
According to WABI, they were taken to the Maine Medical Examiner’s Officer. Positive identification is expected in the coming weeks.
Wardens say they feel confident the remains belong to Largay due to where they were found and evidence gathered at the scene.
66-year old Largay has been missing since July of 2013 when she didn’t show up at a scheduled meeting spot with her husband in Franklin County.
The Tennessee grandmother was last seen on the early morning of July 22 at the Poplar Lean-to in. She was due to hike to another Lean-to in Redington Township that day.
A press conference is scheduled for this afternoon at the Maine Department of Public Safety building in Augusta. (WABI)
