MISSING PERSON: Carla Stefaniak

December 3, 2018

Carla Stefaniak, 36, a Tampa native who was visiting Costa Rica for her birthday, has been missing since Tuesday night.

Stefaniak’s friend and sister-in-law, April Antonieta, reported on Facebook that the last time they heard from her was around 8 p.m. on Nov. 27.

ABC News reported that Stefaniak was staying at an Airbnb in San Antonio de Escazú when she went missing. Antonieta said Stefaniak’s last messages said that it raining heavily and that the power went out.

“It’s pretty sketchy here,” Stefaniak also messaged Antonieta.

Stefaniak missed her flight out of the country the next day and no one has heard from her since. The U.S. Embassy and FBI have already been alerted and the OIJ is also searching for Stefaniak.

 

If you have any information, contact the OIJ by phone at 800-800-0645 or on Whatsapp at 8800-0645.

Updated Dec. 3, 3:50 p.m.: Costa Rica’s OIJ confirmed to The Tico Times it has found a female body in San Antonio of Escazú. The identity of that person has yet to be announced.
