It has been 2,000 days since former FBI agent Robert Levinson went missing in Iran, but U.S. authorities say they are not giving up hope.
The State Department renewed its call on the government of Iran to provide any information on Levinson’s whereabouts, according to a report by UPI. Levinson disappeared on March 9, 2007, and was last seen on Kish Island, which is right off the coast of Iran.
Nothing has been heard from Levinson for two years, when a video showing him in a makeshift cell and asking for rescue was revealed. Levinson had been working as a private investigator while in Iran, and his family speculates that he was looking into cigarette smuggling when he was abducted. It is still unclear who is responsible for his abduction, but some believe Iran’s Revolutionary Guard has played a role. The force has denied any wrongdoing.
