Investigators are also skeptical given the guard could not say if the vehicle that allegedly picked up Carla was a taxi or private.

Authorities in Costa Rica said a body found near an Airbnb matches that of Carla Stefaniak, a US tourist who went missing five days ago, CBS Miami reports.

Costa Rican authorities say they found stains inside the apartment where she was staying which are believed to be blood stains.

- The search for a Florida woman, missing for a week in Costa Rica, has come to a tragic end. The next day, Stefaniak failed to show up for her flight home and hasn't been heard from since.

That led them to search the area around the department, where the bound the body, which was covered with plastic bags. "Her mom is absolutely devastated. "It's pretty sketchy here", she wrote", according to CBS News. She Facetimed a friend in NY, telling him she was going to ask the security guard to buy her a bottle of water. Her sister-in-law, April Burton, accompanied her on the trip but left on November 27 because of a prior commitment.

The body was found covered in plastic bags near an Airbnb apartment that was rented by Stefaniak, who went missing almost a week ago.

The Miami Herald reported that Stefaniak immigrated to the United States from Venezuela in 2000 and works for a Miami insurance agency.

Costa Rican authorities have confirmed that the body belongs to her, and her death is now being investigated as a homicide, WSVN reported on December 4.

"We are really really hoping it (is not her)", said Hallandale Beach resident Laura Jaime, Stefaniak's best friend and former roommate.

"As of this moment, all data gathered points to this being Carla", stated Walter Espinoza, the director of Costa Rica's Judicial Investigation Department. "We checked her email and she did not take an Uber at 5.10am".

"Six o'clock, still haven't heard from her", Burton said.

She later communicated with a friend via Facetime and said that she wanted to go out that night but was too exhausted.

Both Caicedo and his wife, who had been traveling with Stefaniak, are skeptical she would leave that early because her flight wasn't scheduled until more than eight hours later.
