This Friday marks the five-year anniversary of the disappearance of U.S. citizen Robert Levinson, a retired FBI agent who disappeared during a business trip to Kish Island, Iran in 2007. Today, we reaffirm our commitment to locating Mr. Levinson and bringing him home safely. This remains a priority for the United States, and we welcome the assistance of our international partners in this investigation. We also call on the Government of Iran to uphold its promise of assistance and help safely return Mr. Levinson to the United States.

Over the past year, we have had reason to believe that he is being held in southwest Asia, so the FBI is launching a public information campaign in that region and announcing a $1 million reward for information on Mr. Levinson’s whereabouts that could lead to his safe return. Anyone who may have information about this case should contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The U.S. Government is committed to Mr. Levinson's safe return and we will continue to use all available resources until he is home and reunited with his family.
