Two Ticos missing in Japan

March 15, 2011

Two Costa Ricans remain missing in Japan, according to a report by the Costa Rican embassy in Japan.

Costa Rican Ambassador Mario Fernandez Silva said a lack of telephone and digial communication due to damage from the earthquake has made it difficult to locate the two Ticos. However, the ambassador said the embassy has reached the rest of the 241 Costa Ricans in Japan, according to the daily La Nación.

“All of the Ticos are calm and well, now we are having problems with those that live in Tokyo due to lack of items in the supermarket because the supply chain has been interrupted,” Fernández told the paper.
