AUGUSTA, Maine — The Maine Warden Service issued a call Wednesday evening for volunteer searchers affiliated with the Maine Association for Search and Rescue in its ongoing effort to locate a Tennessee hiker who hasn’t been seen since July 21.
“At this time, the Maine Warden Service seeks searchers who are only affiliated with MASAR as we move forward. Those people are to contact the MASAR duty officer,” Cpl. John MacDonald of the Maine Warden Service said in a media update shortly after 6 p.m.
“We also continue to seek information from anyone who stayed at the Spaulding Mountain lean-to on the night of Monday, July 22,” MacDonald said. “We have been utilizing national cellphone analyst experts and have taken all leads to this point as far as we can go.”

MacDonald said earlier that wardens are looking for an unidentified female who called the Stratton Motel about 5 p.m. Wednesday, July 24, reporting that “Inchworm” — Largay’s trail name — was overdue in meeting with her husband, George.
In an update issued shortly before 10 p.m. Thursday, MacDonald said that state game wardens are seeking “critical information” about a woman hiker who called an employee of the Stratton Motel in Stratton on Wednesday night reporting that she had spent Tuesday night with Largay at a lean-to on the trail. The name of the hiker, who said she was traveling south, remains unknown.
“The Maine Warden Service desperately needs to identify this hiker and wishes to speak to her about this incident,” MacDonald said. “Anyone with information who can help identify the hiker is asked to call the Public Safety Dispatch Center in Augusta at 800-452-4664.”
But assume the SOBO got to Stratton on the 24th. Inchworm had been missing for two days. Is it so hard to believe that a rumor of this wouldn't have reached Stratton by then?
