Nat Geo mini-series investigates Cody Dial’s disappearance in Corcovado National Park

May 7, 2016

It has been almost two years since 27-year-old Alaska Native, Cody Dial went missing in Costa Rica’s remote Corcovado National Park but his disappearance remains a mystery. Now, a new documentary on the National Geographic Channel will try to uncover the reason behind Dial’s vanishing in a six-part mini-series.

Cody Dial, the son of famed Alaskan adventurer Roman Dial, had been hiking unauthorized trails in Corcovado when he went missing. A month-long Red Cross search as well as several rescue missions conducted by Dial’s father, turned up no sign of the hiker. On the off chance that his son had moved on for another hike after Corcovado, Roman Dial also conducted another search in Darien, Panama.

The documentary series, “Missing Dial,” follows Roman Dial’s eight-month search in Costa Rica, accompanied by private investigators. Among the theories for his disappearance, the show will examine the dark rumors swirling around the remote Osa Peninsula that Cody Dial was murdered.

“Missing Dial” will premiere Sunday, May 22 at 8 p.m. Costa Rica time on the National Geographic Channel. You can see a sneak preview here at Entertainment Weekly.
