Tuesday (18 October) marks the 7th anniversary of Michael’s disappearance in the seaside holiday town of Tamarindo.

Evidence indicates he was the victim of violent crime.

But Costa Rican authorities and British police did little to investigate. They’ve now given up on the case, despite the family’s long-standing appeals for assistance.

“The Costa Rican authorities can still help us to get to the truth of the matter. People in Tamarindo know what happened to Michael and with the right kind of support, also from the British foreign office, we could find out what happened,” Michael’s brother, David, said.

Michael, who worked as editor of a US business magazine, walked out of his hotel one evening in Tamarindo and never came back.

Some 45,000 British people a year visit Costa Rica, considered a safe destination.

But at least 20 foreign nationals disappeared or were murdered in the country in past seven years, prompting official UK and US travel warnings.

“I will not rest until I know what happened to my son. I trust that some Costa Rican police and British diplomats also have a sense of duty,” Lynn Dixon, Michael’s mother said.
