Breaking news now there are new calls for action is a family begs for help.
Help in finding a retired FBI agent who disappeared in Iran more than five years ago.
Levinson was a private investigator looking in a cigarette smuggling when he vanished on an island in Iran in 2007.
-- before he vanished and these new images have been made public by the family.
A picture shows Levenson an orange jumpsuit like those worn by detainees at Guantanamo Bay.
US officials believe the image as well as others are a sign the -- running in government.
He's behind his disappearance.
Christine Levinson is leading the charge.
The wife of him.
And good morning to you and thank you for your time.
Good morning thank you you receive these images more than two years ago.
Clearly a reason why you're going public now why.
Well at that time -- we didn't have any reason.
Why we receive these images they are pictures but there is no.
Information about what to do with them why we receive them or how we get -- home as a result of these pictures.
And now we need the public to be aware that Bob is still missing and that we have no answer.
Why he is not home with us the around -- I believe the -- -- -- government is holding him and everyone else who has been held by the running government.
-- has been returned to their families and Bob has not well the email appeared to originate from Pakistan as we piece the story together.
But you believe as you said that he is still in Iran here is what someone from the UN mission from Iran said.
Even his family travel to Iran -- were.
Accommodated by the government further investigation prove that Levinson is not in Iran is that there is no single evidence that he is.
There you believe otherwise in the email that went to U.
Was only sent from one email address.
One time and that no further correspondence.
How did they get your read her dress.
Well -- had it on his person he carried.
Palm Pilot at that time that had all of his personal information on it.
In your daughter gets married in a month and I I can sense that your.
-- your frustrated frankly and you want to make this happen do you believe you've got the cooperation of the US government you've expected.
I had I believe that the US government has done everything they can the hard part is diplomatic there are no diplomatic relations with Iran.
And we have not been able to.
Get any proof.
Of -- you know first hand proof that.
Of where he is and so it's very frustrating.
Indeed it must be.
Based on that answer though I assume that you're satisfied with the efforts have been put forth.
But the effort to -- images public.
Would suggest a frustration that continues.
So I asked the question all of them are you getting -- help you -- from Washington.
I don't believe that we need to.
Make sure that -- -- knows that.
We know that they have him.
And that they need to release him.
It is almost six years Bob is going to be 65 years old and there is no reason for him to be held.
I heard you in another interview.
Last night with Greta Van Susteren.
And you suggested perhaps maybe that the hair on his face was not legitimate or not real which.
Made it a bit confusing as to whether or not you can put a timeline together.
Can you explain what you meant by that.
I did not I do not believe that the hair is not real it is -- that is my husband that is his hair and that is his beard.
However I believe that the -- the photos.
Are from before our.
That video because it looks like in the video he has lost a lot of -- I see.
Thank you for that clarification.
And now strive for this one.
How do you deer running in to benefit from holding your husband what -- -- difference.
I have no idea what I know is that.
In April of 2007.
Through their state sanctioned media.
They published an article that said that Bob was in their custody and he would be released shortly and that did not happen.
And so any of these reports that suggest he might be in Pakistan.
Or possibly Afghanistan you dismiss those right.
I do I.
But at the same time I believe that the Iranians are in charge and if they have moved him there.
That's a possibility.
What our thoughts are with you that's a tough tough time my best to you.
In your daughter who goes to the -- and one month's time and perhaps we'll get a monsoon.
