The Cruz Roja said Friday that there have been no new developments in a search for a missing German citizen.
They said the man, identified as Michel Bedge, about 40 years old, is believed to have been lost in the surf more than a week ago. That happened at Playa Carete, which is just east of the boundary with Parque Nacional Corcovado on the Osa Peninsula.
Residents reported finding the man’s belongings on the beach Jan. 23. A search has been conducted since then.
Rescue teams from Puerto Cortés, Laurel and Ciudad Neilly were involved. The Cruz Roja said the search would continue for a few days more but then would be terminated if no clues were found.
