[Notes:March 6, 2012][Notes:AP][Notes:Washington][Notes:Robert Mueller / Director of the FBI]SOT: This week we mark the fifth anniversary of the disappearance of Bob Levinson from Kish Island, Iran. To the members of the Levinson family, we in the FBI share in your heartache. But we also share in your sense of hope, hope of Bob's safety, hope of Bob's health and hope of his homecoming. We in the FBI are working everyday to bring your husband, your father, your grandfather back home to you. Bob was a special agent of the FBI for 22 years and that means something to each and every one of us in the bureau.[Notes:SUPER: James McJunkin / FBI Washington Field Office]SOT: Today the FBI is announcing a reward of $1 million for information leading directly to the safe location, recovery and return of Bob Levinson. I hope this reward encourages anyone with information, regardless of how insignificant they may think it is, to come forward and share this information with us. It may be the clue we need to locate Bob. In November of 2010 a video was released from the group holding Bob that shows him in captivity. While we believe that Bob is alive, we are concerned about his health.[Notes:SUPER: Christine Levinson / Wife of Bob Levinson]SOT: Knowing that Bob is being held against his will and not being able to help him has been extremely difficult for our family. There are no words to describe the nightmare my family and I have been living every day. I never imagined we would still be waiting for Bob to come home five years later.(****END****) VIDEO PRODUCER: ---------------------------VIDEO SOURCE: AP-----------------------VIDEO APPROVAL: ----------------------------VIDEO RESTRICTIONS: ----------------------------------MARKET EMBARGO (S): --------------------------------SCRIPT/WIRE SOURCE:
