What should mark a great birthday surrounded by family and people who love Michael Dixon is yet another year without him.

Michael Dixon, a British journalist based in Brussels, disappeared while on vacation in Costa Rica. He was reportedly last seen on October 18th. His hotel room in Villa Macondo, Tamarindo was found undisturbed and all of his belongings accounted for. To date there are still no leads as to what may have happened to Michael.

Michael was born on the 19th July 1976 in Salford Manchester. His family lives in France. He has 1 younger brother David who lives in London.

Michael has always been an incredibly warm and caring son, brother, friend and colleague. He is loved and respected by everyone he interacts with. His colleagues sometimes say he is known for being calm even in a sea of storm. Although quiet at times, his sense of humour is quick, dry and witty. Michael has many friends around the world who miss him dearly. Some have had this to say about him.

‘Michael is grounded, silent powerhouse and so intelligent & rational’
‘One of my oldest friends. We didn’t meet often, we didn’t communicate often, but he is always there. Each time we meet, it is like we never lost touch’
‘Every year since I've known him we've watched the oscar's together, mind you, it runs from 2am to 6am on a Sunday night! And we would still drag ourselves in to work on Monday morning.’
There is now a large hole in all of the lives which have been touched by the very essence of Michael’s personality. Please help us find him!
