U.S. hiker OK after being found in Costa Rican national park

August 20, 2012

Members of the Red Cross on Monday located Daylor Tangey, 30, a U.S. tourist who had gone missing while hiking in the foothills of the Rincón de la Vieja Volcano, in the northwestern Guanacaste province, over the weekend.

The Red Cross began a search operation on Sunday with staff from offices in Liberia, Cañas and Bagaces. On Monday, a special mountain unit joined the search group and found Tangey at about noon. Tangey was dehydrated but in good condition, officials said.

On Nov. 23, 2009, another U.S. tourist, David Gimelfarb, went missing in the same area and his whereabouts are still unknown.

The Gimelfarb family has visited Costa Rica every year since their son’s disappearance and have offered a $100,000 reward for information about David’s whereabouts.
