Missing Ex-FBI Agent's Children Given Grants
Two of the children of a former FBI agent from Coral Springs who disappeared in Iran five years ago were presented with college grants at a ceremony in Tamarac Thursday. The Society of Former Special Agents of the FBI presented $10,000 to the children of Robert Levinson at the luncheon ceremony at Colony Coast Country Club. David Levinson said Bob Levinson was his mother Christine's "love of her life, and for her to be without him every day, I know that is crushing for her."
"Right now, I am trying to make people aware that my husband is still being held hostage," Levinson said. "We still don't know how to get him home."
She said she has asked for a meeting with Ahmadinejad but hasn't heard back. There are also billboards in Times Square and in midtown Manhattan, near the United Nations, telling people about the reward.
"It's been five-and-a-half-years and over 2,000 days since Bob disappeared, and my goal is to try and remind everyone that he is still being held hostage, and we need to get him home," she said.
The case has increasingly frustrated investigators, who have relied unsuccessfully on evolving strategies of diplomacy and the public release of a proof-of-life video in hopes of finding Levinson.
