Director Robert S. Mueller, III: It is our privilege to stand with the Levinson family for as long as it takes to bring Bob home.

Halpern: I’m Mollie Halpern of the Bureau, and this is Wanted by the FBI. The U.S. government received indications Levinson was being held captive by a group in southwest Asia. Levinson’s wife of 37 years, Christine, says her husband’s disappearance is a nightmare.

Christine Levinson: I just want Bob home. I miss him every day. He is my whole world. 

Halpern: The Society of Former Special Agents of the FBI is giving the Levinsons’ two youngest children $5,000 each to help with college costs.

Levinson: This means a lot. When Bob disappeared, I told my children just to continue to do their best so that their father would be proud of them when he came home. 

Halpern: A reward of up to $1 million is available in this case. Call your local FBI office with tips.
