Police in Costa Rica have launched an investigation into the disappearance of a Californian man who is thought to have gone missing in the Caribbean coast province of Limon.

Sixty-four-year old Brian Lynn Hogue was last seen in the capital San Jose on 1 June before leaving the city to drive home to the farm where he lives in the slope town of Gaupiles with his wife and son, according to a family statement. However, when he failed to arrive home, a neighbor contacted the Judicial Investigation Police (OIJ) to file a missing persons report.

Hogue, who was due to flu to the US this week for his daughter’s wedding, had lived in the Central American nation for five years just outside Guapiles, around an hour’s drive from San Jose.

His son, Jeff, said his father, who also owns a home on the picturesque Nicoya Peninsula, loved the country and was looking forward to retiring there with his stepmother.

His sister, Roxanne Dunn, revealed he was a keen conservationist and was currently working on reforestation projects at his two properties. She said that he grew up on a farm and enjoyed nurturing and protecting Costa Rica’s natural ecosystem. She added that the family was deeply concerned and urged anyone with any information to come forward.
