The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has announced a $1 million reward for information on retired FBI agent Robert Levinson's whereabouts that could lead to his safe return.
This Friday marks the five-year anniversary of the disappearance of Levinson, who disappeared during a business trip to Kish Island, Iran in 2007.
Announcing this on Tuesday, US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said the FBI is launching a public information campaign in southwest Asia, as "Over the past year, we have had reason to believe that he is being held in that region."
She requested those who may have information about this case to contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation. She vowed that the U.S. Government is committed to Levinson's safe return and that "we will continue to use all available resources until he is home and reunited with his family."
"This remains a priority for the United States, and we welcome the assistance of our international partners in this investigation," Clinton said in a statement. She called on the Iranian Government to uphold its promise of assistance and help safely return Levinson to the United States.
