I copied this entry and pasted it into the guestbook for Crunchmaster. He has his journal on Trailjournals. I have not seen any of the other names on that site. But in the journals I have read, I have seen references to Inchworm. I hope they find her alright.

Was hoping I'd get up today and this would be a done deal...found and back home with loved ones...still pryin this turns out well....
I hike for hikin'
I went to the ATI with her and her husband in Sept '11. This is so sad - I hope they find her safely
It looks like Crunchmaster saw her Monday between Poplar Ridge Lean To and Spalding Lean To according to the latest journal posting:
Gosh I hope they find her safely.
Another one?? I hope this one is rescued as well, but gets home safely.
Does anyone know anymore about this? 07/06/2013 Deputy Zecher responded to the Appalachian Trail in Wyman Township regarding a complaint from a female hiker. The complainant stated that there was a strange man who goes by the name of Richard (nickname brown blazer) had been acting strange. He has been leaving threatening messages on the AT trail recording logs. No one person has been targeted, however, she wanted to report it to law enforcement. A check of the trail heads did not reveal any vehicles that came close to the alleged offender’s first name. Notification has been made throughout the hiking community.
Wyman Township was where she was supposed to meet her husband on Monday...I am praying they find her soon and safe.
is that a pretty rough area she is in?
Hoosier (who I met in NC/VA in April) reported that it was cold after "The Notch", close to being hypothermic.........not sure what the weather has been like where she is.
A young man got lost last winter while skiing in this area and he was found a few days later safe because he made some good decisions. It sounds like she is very experienced, so I hope she is just hunkered down somewhere waiting for them to find her.
Hope she's found soon!

If you have any information to pass on to help the search and Rescue folks please note that there seems to be an intermittent problem with the phone number(s).
It's probably best to call the numbers if you can. I was able to successfully get through on the 800# earlier today without any problem. However, at times before and after my own call, some folks have reported experiencing problems with the phone numbers, including getting out of service messages. So if you are trying to share information and can not get through, another possible contact point is the Facebook Page for the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.
https://www.facebook.com/mainefishwildlife Updates on the search are posted there also.
