Canadian Hiker’s Body Found On Appalachian Trail In Maine

An Ontario hiker’s body was found on the Appalachian Trail in Maine, not far from where hiker Geraldine Largay was last seen alive.

55-year-old Gerald Gabon of Milton, Ontario was found Sunday afternoon on a section of trail in Franklin County’s Wyman Township. Wardens say it appears he died of a medical episode, but the State Medical Examiner’s office will perform an autopsy to confirm cause of death.

Corporal John MacDonald of the Warden Service told Centralmaine.com that Gabon was an avid hiker who was known to hike rugged terrain. He says the portion of trail where the man died is rough and rugged, and has no cellphone service, so Gabon wouldn’t have been able to call for help. A helicopter was used to help remove the body from the trail.

The area where another hiker discovered the Canadian’s body is close to where Tennessee hiker Geraldine Largay was last seen alive. She was reported missing in July of 2013 when she failed to meet up with her husband as she hiked the AP. Largay’s remains were found in October of 2015 at an encampment she had created near Redington Township.
