An American woman who was visiting Nosara has been missing since Wednesday, December 18. She was last seen in Playa Guiones collecting sea shells.

Glenda Gully, who is 51 years old, from California, was staying in a house in the area known as Section K, in the Guiones Beach Club, along with five people. One of them went to the Tourist Police on Wednesday the 18th at 6 p.m., with Gully’s passport in hand, to file the report.

“We had all gone down to the beach to see the sunset and take some pictures,” related Diana Davis, a friend traveling with Gully. They took a picture of Gully and then while they were taking other pictures, Gully disappeared. 

She was wearing a red top, a blue floral bathing suit and shorts. Davis describes her as quite thin, with dishwater blond hair and about 5 feet and five inches tall. “She has nothing with her, no money, no medicine, no identification,” Davis related.

Gully is on medication for depression. Davis said Gully experienced a tragedy three years ago and was having a hard time getting over it. Davis is from Montana but stayed in touch with Gully over the telephone. “We thought the vacation would help her get out of her surroundings, come here, relax and find some peace,” she said.

Nicoya’s Judicial Investigation Organism (OIJ) came to Nosara on Thursday the 19th for the night to initiate the investigation. For their part, the Tourist Police are patrolling the Guiones area and asking residents about the missing woman.
