Statement by Spokesperson Nuland on Robert Levinson’s Disappearance in Iran

Washington, D.C.



Tomorrow marks 2,000 days since U.S. citizen Robert Levinson went missing in Iran on March 9, 2007. Mr. Levinson was last seen on Kish Island and the United States reiterates its call on the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran to provide any information on Mr. Levinson’s whereabouts and to help ensure his prompt and safe return to his family.

Determining Mr. Levinson’s whereabouts and reuniting him safely with his family continues to be a priority for the U.S. Government. The United States also continues to welcome the assistance of our international partners in this investigation.

On March 6, 2012, the FBI announced 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.
