Gibson apparently hiked with several different sections of her classmates at different paces during the day. She was last seen at approximately 15.00, near Clingman's Dome.
Gibson disappeared without a trace and has not been seen again. Extensive searches of the park continued until the end of October 1976, but she was never located.
