“Really friendly; extroverted; has a ton of friends.” April Burton describes her sister-in-law, to Burton flew home on Tuesday, Carla 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”, said Burton.

“Someone’s lying,” Burton said. “Someone’s not telling the truth because that’s not her character.”

“We just want to know where she is. We just want to find out where she was,” Burton told “She was just such a happy go lucky person. I’m just afraid she was just too trusting with someone there”.

Those who know Stefaniak alerted both the U.S. Embassy in San Jose and the FBI, which they say are trying to work with local authorities to find her.

“The U.S. Department of State and our embassies and consulates abroad have no greater responsibility than the protection of U.S. citizens overseas,” a U.S. State Department official told 10News. “When a U.S. citizen is missing, we work closely with local authorities as they carry out their search efforts. Due to privacy considerations, we have no further comment.”

Carla’s family is also urging everyone to reach out to their congress members, to beg them to get U.S. authorities more involved in the search.

They have started a GoFundMe account to support relatives, including Carla’s brother who traveled to Costa Rica looking for answers.
