A Briton missing in the aftermath of the Brussels attacks has not been in contact with his partner since the bombs went off and may have been on the Metro at the time.
This morning, the UK Prime Minister David Cameron's office said it was concerned about David Dixon following the Brussels terror attacks.
The statement also revealed that four Britons had been injured, three of whom are in hospital
Missing David Dixon, who lives in Brussels but is originally from Hartlepool, County Durham, was travelling to work on Tuesday morning but did not arrive at his office.
Friends on social media have been appealing for information on his whereabouts and asking anyone with information to contact his partner Charlotte Sutcliffe.
Mr Dixon's' partner Charlotte has been driving around hospitals in the hope of finding him, according to family friend, Simon Hartley-Jones.
Mr Hartley-Jones said Mr Dixon and his partner Charlotte Sutcliffe, who have a seven-year-old son, had lived in Brussels for about 10 years.
Simon Hartley-Jones, who described himself as a "very good friend" of Mr Dixon, said he was missing and asked his followers to retweet the appeal to find him.
He said: "David is a programmer and works in the centre of Brussels. He makes his way there every day using the metro system. For some reason he hasn't made it... and we're really concerned about him."
"It's really unusual for him not to contact [Charlotte] - it's really out of character."

He tweeted a photo of Mr Dixon, who wears glasses and has been pictured with short grey hair, captioned: "He was in the metro system, he didn't arrive to his office and we still haven't reached him."
Photos of Mr Dixon, including one of him with a little boy, were also circulated on social media.
His Facebook page shows that he studied Economics at Newcastle University and used to work for British Airways.
