The wife of a former FBI agent whom the United States says disappeared during a visit to Iran has arrived in Tehran seeking information about her missing husband, the website of an Iranian news television channel reported Wednesday.
Washington says Robert Levinson went missing in the southern Iranian island of Kish in March and the US government has asked Tehran to help determine his whereabouts.
Levinson retired from the US Federal Bureau of Investigations ten years ago and previously worked for the Drug Enforcement Agency.
His wife, Christine, accompanied by her 22-year-old son Daniel and her sister Susan, landed at Tehran's Imam Khomeini International Airport late Tuesday, the English language Press TV reported.
According to the report, the Levinson family is expected to meet Iranian officials through the coordination of the Swiss Embassy in Tehran.
Washington has been communicating with Tehran through the Swiss embassy, which has represented the United States since diplomatic relations between the two were severed in 1980.
Iran says it is cooperating in trying to locate the missing US national and has asked US officials for more information about Levinson.
