MISSING PERSON: Carla Stefaniak
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.
