    I hope this is okay to post even though there is no link to a news article. It is an email from Gerry's husband, George, that is being forwarded throughout our parish.

    In this and a previous email George gives permission to share these details and even asks us to risk oversharing, so I don't feel like I'm breaking any confidence.

    This is from Saturday, so it is a little out of date, but gives you an idea of what steps are being taken to find Gerry.

    Gerry Gerry, where are you?... you are in the hearts of many unknown people.

    What a trip she had planned! Hoping that she shows up soon - weather seems decent and she is experienced.

    I wonder what information they got from her phone records? Pings?

    I have been hiking many of the trails and mountains in NH in the last couple months. We have found the trails wet, muddy and of course the rocks are slippery. I can't imagine that with all the people on the AT that she hasn't been spotted.

    Please let her be found alive....let her achieve her goal of reaching Baxter State park.

    I know the searches can't go on forever, but this makes my heart hurt.

    I hope they find this lovely lady - what a great smile and outlook on life she has.
    I hope where ever Gerry is she is safe, unharmed and just getting her bearings so she can come home to her loved ones soon.

    My prayers are with her husband and family, the searchers and all her friends.

    Video at this link really shows how treacherous the terrain is.

    So grateful for the SAR professionals and volunteers!

    angelmom, did you inquire about her cell phone details?

    I hiked a mountain in NH on Tuesday and the conditions were wet as there have been storms. I am going up to Maine on Sat and Sun to hike the area between the Poplar hut north. I hate to think of her hurt up there...or of course worse things. Hopefully she will be found soon. There are so many great people in the hiking community up here, I can't imagine that they haven't found her yet. I can't imagine her veering off trail, unless she wanted to see a lookout point or of course if she encountered bears or moose or something.

    This article explains more about the cell phones and that they still have not found the anonymous caller...which seems weird.

    Trained SAR only this weekend. I wonder if there's a way to put an announcement up for those in the area. I know we have some members who are trained.

    Feeling terrible for the family. Their kids had to go home so a friend from
    Church flew up to be with George. Must have been heartbreaking to say goodbye. I know it can't go on forever, but how do you decide when to stop?

    Where are you Gerry????
