The wife of a missing former FBI agent has hired a lawyer in Iran to try to persuade authorities there to investigate her husband's disappearance last year. Christine Levinson tells The Associated Press Tuesday she has received no information on her husband Robert Levinson's location. He was last seen March 8 on Iran's Kish Island. He had gone there to seek information on cigarette smuggling for a client of his security firm. Levinson says her lawyer filed papers on Feb. 17 asking Iranian authorities to open an official investigation. Levinson traveled to Iran in December with her son and sister to look for her husband. She says she met with Iranian officials.
