Family In Appeal To Find Missing Brit In Costa Rica

(UKPA) The family of a British man who went missing during a holiday to Costa Rica is appealing for help to trace him. Michael Dixon, 33, checked into the Villas Macondo hotel in Tamarindo, Guanacaste, at 3pm on October 18.

The last confirmed sighting of him was at 4.30pm the same day when staff saw him leave the hotel, his brother David Dixon said.

Mr Dixon, who is currently in Costa Rica searching for his brother, said: "We have been here two weeks and we still have no idea what's happened. It's very worrying.

"All his belongings were still in his room - his phone, his glasses, his wallet. Everything."

Mr Dixon, who was born in Salford but grew up in France, was reported missing to local police by hotel staff on October 21.

The Brussels-based journalist, who edits a magazine for the pulp and paper industry, failed to return to work on October 26.

Family members then flew to Costa Rica to start the hunt and searches on foot, by boat and by plane involving the Red Cross and local volunteers have already been carried out.

Mr Dixon's parents Lynn and Hubert, who live in France, are making an appeal at a press conference in central London on Friday.

His brother added: "We are working with Costa Rican authorities, the British Foreign Office and the Red Cross to find Michael, but we would appreciate information from local people in Tamarindo who may have seen him in the town, especially on Sunday October 18 or Monday October 19."
