Carlos Caicedo the father of missing Carla Stefaniak arrived in Costa Rica Monday night to verify if the body found on Monday is his daughter

She checked in for her flight but never boarded the plane. "That's the last we heard from her". "May god bless her soul".

According to Costa Rica's El Organismo de Investigación Judicial (or Judicial Investigation Department) search dogs found the partially decomposed body of a woman on Monday - almost a week after Stefaniak's family reported her missing on November 28. Her father caught a flight from Tampa International Airport on Monday - not long before authorities in Costa Rica made the grim announcement that an unidentified body had been found not far from the Airbnb. Officials say that Martínez had the time and space to commit this crime and became a suspect because of the investigation. The next day, after Stefaniak failed to show up at the airport, Jaime said her family took action. Relatives have said she checked in for a return flight to Florida on November 28 but never boarded the plane.

Costa Rica's government spokesperson Walter Espinoza said the guard was identified as 32-year-old Bismarck Espinosa Martinez, a Nicaraguan who immigrated to Costa Rica in June. He did not discuss a possible cause of death.

Carla Stefaniak, 36, went missing last week before sending an ominous text message to her sister-in-law.

She was later dropped off by the same Uber driver and sent a photo of the place she was staying at to her sister-in-law.

Authorities found the decomposed bodyaround noon Monday in a wooded area of San Antonio de Escazu, Espinoza said.

Chief Espinoza said that the body had stab wounds in the neck and other parts of her body, and that her injuries were "consistent with being hit in the head".

According to the Tampa Bay Times, blood was found in Stefaniak's room and a security guard who works at the Airbnb is being held in custody as authorities investigate.

On the eve of her departure, she texted Ms Burton to say it was raining hard and there was a power cut at the property.

The body, covered in plastic bags, was found about 300 meters (300 yards) from the apartment that Stefaniak was staying at in San Jose to celebrate her 36th birthday.

Witnesses supposedly saw Stefaniak leaving the Airbnb around 5 a.m. with her luggage and getting into an unknown vehicle, according to the Miami Herald. Zwolinsky argued that the timeline offered by the AirBnb owner and guard that Stefaniak left in an Uber at five in the morning didn't really make sense. "That's kind of where we are right now". "You never want to think the worst, but that's where your mind goes to automatically". We're going on six days not hearing from her.

The complex where Stefaniak had been stayed is temporarily closed, a lawyer for the site told CNN affiliate WFTS. The owners are fully cooperating with the authorities in the investigation and we hope that once the facts are determined, the perpetrator is brought to justice.

Stefaniak's sister in law who had been traveling with her flew home Wednesday one day before Carla was scheduled to.
