Nothing yet has worked for the family of a former FBI agent missing since traveling to Iran five years ago.
So the family of 64-year-old Bob Levinson, with the help of the FBI, rented billboards in Times Square and subway entrances near the United Nations with an urgent plea to the visiting world leaders, the New York Daily News reports.
“Please encourage the Islamic Republic of Iran to work with the United States Government to bring Bob home,” one message reads.
The message appears to have gotten through to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who on Tuesday suggested the husband and father was still alive, according to the Daily News.
“This is the first time he’s said anything about Bob,” wife Christine Levinson said. “We are hoping he will follow up and get the job finished so we can get him home safely.”
