U.S. man disappears on Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast

January 1, 2013

A San Antonio, Texas man went missing Saturday after he was pulled out to sea by a wave off in Punta Uva beach, in the Caribbean province of Limón.

Police officers said Brian Maltez, 39, disappeared on December 29, at around 8:30 a.m. after he went for a swim with a friend.

Official reports state Maltez, who was apparently vacationing in Costa Rica, was with a woman who saw him disappear, but nobody else was around to help.

Neighbors, police officers, Red Cross rescue crews and Coast Guard boats are carrying out a search operation in a radius of some 20 kilometers from Cocles to Manzanillo beaches.
