August 26, 2019

Costa Rica’s Judicial Investigation Police (OIJ) are searching for Charlie Edward Hughes, a U.S. citizen who went missing earlier in August.

OIJ says Hughes, 62, disappeared on Aug. 3 in Puerto Jiménez, Puntarenas.

Hughes’s family told Fox 13 News that Charlie had travelled to Costa Rica “to visit a man he’d recently met on his first trip to the Central American country.”

Fox 13 News reports the family is working with the FBI and a missing persons organization to locate Hughes.
