There are no traces in Iran of the former FBI agent who disappeared there six years ago, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on CBS's "Face The Nation" on Sunday.

Robert Levinson, who became a private detective after retiring from the FBI in 1998, disappeared during a trip to an Iranian island in 2007. The White House says he was not a government employee at the time.

The fate of Levinson is unclear and Zarif told CBS the Iranian government has no idea about his whereabouts.

"What we know is that he is not incarcerated in Iran," Zarif said, adding, "If he is, he's not incarcerated by the government and I believe the government runs the, pretty much, good control of the country."
