Former FBI Agent Presumed Dead in Iranian Custody

Robert Levinson has been missing since 2007.

A retired FBI agent and private investigator who disappeared from an Iranian island in 2007, is believed to have died in Iranian custody.

The family of Robert Levinson and U.S. officials agreed that “We don’t know when or how he died, only that it was prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

President Trump said he had not been told that Levinson was deceased, but “he wasn’t well for years in Iran. He’s been sick for a long time, and he had some rough problems prior to his detainment or capture,” the president said, adding that Levinson “was a great gentleman.”

Levinson was the longest-held hostage in U.S. history, and his family had fought for over a decade for his safe return, blaming the Iranian regime for his capture and imprisonment.

The family thanked President Trump and U.S. officials for their efforts to find Levinson. “We will miss his warmth, humor, and wisdom, but most of all, we will miss the deep and unconditional love he had for each one of us. He will never be forgotten – we will make sure of it.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the family of Robert Levinson as they grieve his death.
  • For other American hostages being held in other nations around the world, including more in Iran.
  • For State Department officials who are pressing Iran for the return of Mr. Levinson’s body to his family for a proper burial.
