A hiker on the US' Appalachian Trail, whose remains were discovered last year, survived at least 26 days after getting lost and kept a journal of her ordeal and ultimately resigned herself to the idea she was going to die. Geraldine Largay, who was from Brentwood, Tennessee, hiked to higher ground in a failed attempt to get a mobile phone signal, and text messages sent to her husband went undelivered, according to investigatory documents. "When you find my body, please call my husband George ... and my daughter Kerry," Largay, who was 66 years old, wrote in a page that was torn out of her journal. "It will be the greatest kindness for them to know that I am dead where you found me - no matter how many years from now."
This is no doubt a very traumatic day in the lives of Geraldine's husband and daughter, but hopefully it will help them to find some closure in the loss of a loved one.
