Francisco Segura, director of the Organismo de Investigacion Judicial (OIJ) confirmed that his agents are continuing with the extensive search to locate Piercy.

“The disappearance is very mysterious,” says Segura.

The director added that authorities are working on several hypothesis of what could have happened to the Canadian businessman, who is a nationalized Costa Rican and living in the country for almost 20 years.
