Former FBI agent Robert Levinson disappeared in 2007 while on Kish. He was in Iran for the CIA working as a private investigator when he was kidnapped by Iranian security forces. Levinson’s family has now released that they received information from U.S. officials stating he was dead. “It is impossible to describe our pain. Our family will spend the rest of our lives without the most amazing man we have ever known, a new reality that is inconceivable to us,” they commented. The last sign of life was in 2011 when a video and images were released, but with an unknown location. In the video he was wearing an orange jumpsuit, and officials have said they believed he was currently held in Afghanistan or Pakistan.
