NEW YORK — The United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) continues to investigate the disappearance of Robert A. Levinson since he went missing on Kish Island, Iran, on March 9, 2007.

Mr. Levinson is a retired U.S. government employee who gave 28 years of service to the U.S. Department of Justice, including the FBI and the Drug Enforcement Administration. Levinson retired from the FBI in 1998 and worked as a private investigator following his retirement. Levinson traveled to Kish Island, Iran, on March 8, 2007, working on behalf of several large corporations, and his whereabouts, well-being and the circumstances surrounding his disappearance have been unknown since that time. He was supposedly researching a cigarette smuggling case.


In March 2015, the FBI increased the reward in this case to up to $5 million for information leading directly to the safe location, recovery, and return of Mr. Levinson. (Three years ago, on the fifth anniversary of his disappearance in March 2012, the FBI announced a $1 million reward.) The reward remains unclaimed, and the FBI asks anyone who may have information related to Mr. Levinson’s disappearance to contact the FBI. All tips will remain anonymous. If you have any information, please contact your nearest FBI office or U.S. Embassy or Consulate, or submit a tip online.
