The United States has made a third appeal to the Iranian government for information about a former FBI agent who has been missing in Iran for more than a month. The State Department said Monday it had sent a new diplomatic note to Teheran through Swiss intermediaries, asking about the welfare and whereabouts of Robert Levinson, a US citizen who retired from the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 1998, last seen in early March on Iranian island of Kish. "Over the weekend, we did send another message to the Iranian government asking for an answer as to what they know of his whereabouts," spokesman Sean McCormack told reporters. Iran has responded to two previous appeals by asking for more information about Levinson, who was on the island - a Persian Gulf resort area and free-trade zone - on private business when his family and current employer reported him missing.
