The US is seeking information from Iran about a former FBI agent who was reported missing while on a business trip there several weeks ago. FBI spokesman Rich Kolko said Monday the agent had retired nearly a decade ago and appeared to be in Iran on private business. He said the missing man was last seen there in early March and was not working for the FBI as a contractor. "At this time, there are no indications that this matter should be viewed other than as a missing person case," Kolko said. Kolko also said the former agent had worked on traditional criminal issues such as organized crime cases - drawing a distinction between those and international terrorism or intelligence work that could have taken him to Iran.
