The Dixon family is not giving up on the search for their
missing kin, and they have chosen music to carry the message.
“Come Home” is a raw and emotional R&B soul track by London-based singer Kyra Simone and produced by David Dixon, the brother of British journalist Michael Dixon, who disappeared on a Costa Rican holiday last year, the family said.
Proceeds from the United Kingdom and international release will go to the Help Find Michael Dixon fund and to missing persons charities around the world, they said.
A summary of the musical work reflects the frustration of the family: “Michael Dixon walked out of his hotel room in Tamarindo, Costa Rica, on 18 October 2009 and vanished without trace. Evidence indicates he was the victim of crime in a place that markets itself as a safe holiday destination but which is in reality controlled by violent drug gangs. The Costa Rica police and the British government have done next to nothing to find out what happened.”
Ms. Simone’s music is frequently featured on BBC Radio 1XTRA and BBC 3 Radio Counties, said a release. She is currently working with UK funk R&B soul legend Carl McIntosh/Loose Ends and getting ready to release her album THE SCENT V2, it added.
David Dixon said that he hopes the song gets the case more coverage and brings comfort to other families going through the same ordeal as his family.
