The Harrowing Moment Officials Discovered Remains of Missing Hiker Off Appalachian Trail

By Johanna Li

Two years after the search was called off for a missing hiker on the Appalachian Trail, rescue teams found her remains, and the harrowing moment was captured on tape.

According to the Maine Warden Service, Geraldine Largay was reported missing in the summer of 2013. Despite the search effort being one of the largest in the state's history, the 66-year-old woman was never found.

Though rescue teams called off their search, they never gave up hope.

During a recent filming of the Animal Planet reality series 'North Woods Law,' the Maine Warden Service was informed that a surveyor working on the property may have come across human remains near where Largay had gone missing in 2013.

The Maine Warden Service, accompanied by the 'North Woods Law' camera crew, set off to investigate the scene.

In a clip shared exclusively with Inside Edition, a game warden can be seen, eyes wide as they peeled back the tent that acted as Largay's final resting place.
