FBI Takes Note of the 7th Anniversary of the Disappearance of Ex-FBI Agent Robert Levinson

The FBI issued a press release on Friday denoting the seven-year anniversary of the disappearance of former FBI agent Robert Levinson.

The release said that Levinson, who turns 66 on March 10, retired from the FBI in 1998. On March 8, 2007, he traveled to Kish Island, Iran, “as a private investigator. He went missing the next day and is now one of the longest-held Americans in history.”

The release makes no mention of his wife Christine Levinson’s statements in January to CBS that her husband was a consultant for the CIA.

The FBI announced two years ago that it was offering a $1 million reward in the case.

“Bob’s absence over the past seven years has exacted an enormous toll on his family, and we will not waver in our commitment to bringing him home safely to his loved ones and his country,” FBI Director James B. Comey said in a statement. “We continue to request the assistance of our international partners, as well as the Islamic Republic of Iran, and we continue to ask anyone with information regarding Bob’s disappearance to contact the FBI.”

The wife of a former FBI agent missing for five years traveled to New York to urge Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to help find her husband, NBC 4 New York reports.

Bob Levinson, 64, traveled to the Iranian island of Kish on March 8, 2007, and never returned.

His wife, Christine Levinson, said she feels helpless because she has no information or way of finding out new information.

The plea coincides with Ahmadinejad’s planned speech to the U.N. General Assembly on Wednesday, NBC 4 New York reported.

“I am pleading with all the members of the UN to try and help me get Iran to investigate,” she said.
