Could the release by Iran of two American hikers help spur the release of  missing retired FBI agent Robert Levinson?

Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla) hopes so.

Fox News reports that Nelson fired of a letter on Sept. 22 to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asking her to press the issue at the United Nations General Assembly last week. The letter came one day after the American hikers were released.

Levinson, married and the father of seven, vanished in March 2007 after checking out of a hotel on Kish Island, a Persian Gulf resort off the southern coast of Iran, Fox reported.

Fox reported that Levinson traveled to the region to meet an an American fugitive accused of murdering a former Iranian official in Maryland in 1980.

Recent reports said that Levinson was alive and being held somewhere in Southwest Asia.

In a letter to Clinton, Sen. Nelson wrote, according to Fox:

“I hope you will be able to appeal to Tehran’s representatives there to help reunite a husband and father with wife Christine and their seven children. The Levinson family has suffered all too long.”
