Wife of missing ex-FBI man gets no news in Iran

TEHRAN (Reuters) - The wife of a former FBI agent who went missing in Iran nine months ago said on Saturday she had been unable to find out what had happened to her husband during a four-day visit to the Islamic state to search for him.

"Our trip is almost over and the miracle we were hoping for has not happened," Christine Levinson told a news conference in Tehran together with her son Daniel.

"We still don't know were Bob is and the nightmare I and my family are experiencing will continue," she said adding that she had held talks with Iranian officials during her visit.

Robert Levinson, who retired from the FBI a decade ago, vanished in March while on a business trip to Iran's Gulf island of Kish. U.S. officials have said they believe Levinson is in Iran but they have no credible information on his whereabouts.
