The United States and at least nine other countries are investigating the disappearance of a Malaysian Airlines jetliner, CBS News reports.

The Boeing 777, which included 239 people, has been missing for four days.

Without any sign of trouble, authorities are having trouble pinning down why the plane disappeared.

It’s unclear whether it was a pilot error, plane malfunction or a hijacking.

The plane departed Malaysia early Saturday en route to Beijing before disappearing from radar.

Etan Patz, whose 1979 disappearance shocked New Yorkers, was declared dead in 2001, and the 6-year-old’s confessed killer was charged.

But the New York Daily News reports that the FBI asked an American living in Europe if he was Patz.

“Obviously, I was surprised,” the man, who asked not to be identified, said. “I chuckled. I thought it was funny because it was so unlikely that it would be possible that I could be this person. I had no idea who Etan Patz was.”

In fact, the man is 30. Patz would be 41.

It remains unclear why the FBI sought out the man living in Europe.

The case of the former FBI agent who went missing in Iran six years ago remains a mystery.

There’s no evidence that Robert Levinson is in Iran, the country’s Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told the Associated Press.

“What we know is that he is not incarcerated in Iran,” Zarif said. “If he is, he’s not incarcerated by the government and I believe the government runs the, pretty much, good control of the country.”

It was revealed last week that Levinson was actually working for the CIA when he disappeared.

Almost six years has passed since Christine Levinson saw her husband, a former FBI agent who disappeared in Iran in 2007.

After all these years, Levinson still believes her husband, Robert Levinson, a private investigator, is alive.

Levinson is urging the U.S. government to increase pressure on Iran, which federal authorities believe played a role in the kidnapping, Fox News reports.

“I believe he is still alive,” she said in an interview Tuesday night with Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren. “I believe he is spending every waking hour making sure that he is well enough to come home to us.”

The photos show Levinson with a long beard and disheveled hair, wearing an orange jumpsuit.
