A 36-year-old Florida woman celebrating her 36th birthday in Costa Rica has vanished after texting her family.
Carla Stefaniak, 36 , has been missing since Tuesday. She was scheduled to return home from vacation on Wednesday.
According to CBS News,Stefaniak was all smiles posting multiple videos and photos on social media as she and her sister-in-law April Burton spent a weeklong vacation in Costa Rica.
“It’s pretty sketchy in here,” Stefaniak wrote to Burton after the power went out in the shabby home.
Stefaniak was supposed to return from vacation the next day.
But she didn't get on the plane, and all the family has gotten from the Costa Ricans who may have seen her is that Carla just decided to check out of her accommodations at five in the morning.
Federal investigators say 36-year-old Stefaniak, whose last known address was in Broward County, was reported missing Wednesday.
Her family members, who still live in Tampa, last heard from her at 8 p.m. Tuesday, according to a GoFundMe page. They grew concerned after she didn't show up for a 1 p.m. flight Wednesday.
Now, they're worried she might have been kidnapped.
