FBI Releases Statement on Investigation into Robert Levinson’s Disappearance in IranPress Release
Sunday, the United States celebrated the safe return of four American citizens detained by the government of Iran to their families and loved ones. However, family members of retired FBI agent Robert “Bob” Levinson continue to await news. Levinson went missing from Kish Island, Iran in March 2007; for nine years, Levinson’s wife, children and grandchildren have waited for his release and return, said an FBI press release.
“Bob forever remains part of the FBI family, and we remain committed to bringing him home safely to the family who misses him so much,” said FBI officials. “The FBI expects our Iranian counterparts to fulfill their commitment to locate Bob and help bring him home safely.”
In March 2015, the FBI increased the reward for information leading directly to the location and return of Levinson to $5 million.
“We continue to investigate and follow up on all information we receive, no matter how insignificant it might seem, to include all those received confidentially on tips.fbi.gov and 1-800-CALL-FBI.
