LONDON, May 24, 2011 -

- The family of missing British journalist Michael Dixon has written to
Prime Minister David Cameron to appeal for help, following his intervention
in the Madeleine McCann case.

Michael's brother, David Dixon, said: "It's great news for all families
of Britons missing abroad that David Cameron and the Met are helping the
McCanns. Now we're asking them to do the same for us."

The Dixon family's letter to Prime Minister Cameron says: "We need
political action to break the wall of apathy … Michael has not become
famous like Madeleine, but he is no less important and our pain is no less

The Dixon family is asking for the PM's intervention to make sure the
Metropolitan Police Authority reviews the case files and sends a mission to
Costa Rica.

The British authorities have admitted there is a problem with red tape.
Minister of state Jeremy Browne said in a letter on 12 May : "The Costa Rican
police invited the UK police to discuss the case via a teleconference, but
this offer was turned down."

Michael Dixon vanished after leaving his hotel room in Tamarindo, Costa
, on 18 October 2009.

The story was recently covered in a BBC documentary:
