Missing for 2,000 Days

Retired FBI agent Robert Levinson disappeared in Iran 2,000 days ago.  Levinson, who became a private investigator after retiring from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, was working on a cigarette smuggling case when he disappeared more than five years ago while on a business trip on Iran’s Kish island on March 8, 2007.  A proof of life was provided in 2010 where Levinson asks the US Government for help.

The FBI has offered a reward of $1 million for information leading to Levinson’s safe return, but no new leads on who is holding him or what they want. The US continues to put pressure on Iran for information on Levinson’s whereabouts.
