    The White House marked the 10th anniversary of the disappearance of US contractor Robert Levinson in Iran with a fresh request for information and a $5 million reward, and vowed to bring him back.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Levinson, a retired Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agent who reportedly was working on contract for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), vanished from Kish Island in Iran.

    "The Trump administration remains unwavering in our commitment to locate Mr. Levinson and bring him home," a statement said on Thursday. "We want him back, and we will spare no effort to achieve that goal."

    Iran has never publicly announced knowledge of Levinson’s presence in the country.
