It has been seven long years since FBI agent Robert Levinson disappeared while on a mission for the CIA in Iran.
“Today we remind the world that, after seven years, Bob is still not home with those who love him – his wife, sons, daughters, grandchildren and friends,” the family said in a emailed statement Friday, ABC News reports. “Bob’s continued imprisonment defies the humanity in all of us. After seven years, we have almost no words left to describe our life without Bob… We miss everything about [him]. No matter where we turn, Bob is absent.”
Levinson was retired from the FBI when he was kidnapped from Kish Island off Iran’s coast on March 9, 2007.
Only recently was it discovered that Levinson was working as a freelance spy for the CIA.
The family’s attorney expressed anger that the real story of his work as a CIA was never divulged.
“[R]ather than acknowledge what they had done and try and save Bob’s life, they denied him,” McGee said.
