BASS: Family of missing British journalist Michael Dixon releases ‘Come Home’ feat. Kyra Simone
The family of Michael Dixon, a British journalist who disappeared in Tamarindo, Costa Rica, on October 18, 2009 without a trace will release a song ‘Come Home’ sung by London-based artist Kyra Simone.

Come Home is a raw and emotional R&B soul track produced by David Dixon, the brother of Michael Dixon, whose disappeareance happened while on holiday. Proceeds from the UK and international release will go to the Help Find Michael Dixon fund and to missing persons charities around the world.
"When I wrote these lyrics, I connected with a deep feeling of loss but also with hope. I want to touch people who have lost someone they love and to create support from the media so that this type of thing is not brushed under the carpet," Kyra Simone said.
Added David Dixon: "Music can go a long way -- by releasing this song I hope to reach out to even more people and to show the world that we are not going away until we get answers. I thank all those who participated in making this such a great record."
Evidence indicates Michael Dixon 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, his family said in a press release. The Costa Rica police and the British government have done next to nothing to find out what happened, the statement said.
The release of Come Home is the culmination of David Dixon's one-man campaign to find his older brother and to spotlight the lack of support for families of missing persons abroad.
Kyra Simone's music is frequently featured on BBC Radio 1XTRA and BBC 3 Radio Counties. For more information on the campaign to find Michael Dixon see helpfindmichaeldixon.com.
