Ten years ago, an ex-FBI agent named Robert Levinson went on a rogue mission to an island on Iran. Then he never came back.
Last year, Levinson’s wife slammed Obama for arranging a prisoner exchange that did not include Robert. U.S. officials have said for years that they think he is alive, but we haven’t seen or heard of him since a hostage video and photos sent about five years ago. The Iranian government claims not to know where he is either.
Now that Donald Trump holds office, the Levinson family found renewed hope when the White House recently pledged to do everything in their power to return Bob to American soil.
The White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, had this to say, “We want him back, and we will spare no effort to achieve that goal.”
The Levinson family is sure that Bob is still alive, and they want to send him a message, “We know you are alive and trying to come home to us … We will never, never, ever give up looking for you.”

The son of a former FBI agent who vanished 10 years ago in Iran said Thursday he’s hopeful President Trump will make good on his promise to bring his father home.
“He can do something that two U.S. presidents haven’t done,” Daniel Levinson told Fox News.
“I do not think there has been enough pressure on the Iranians over the years,” Levinson said. “Trump is a deal-maker who has no issue using tough language with Iran.”
