AP Exclusive: Missing American on video: 'Help me'
AP Exclusive: Years after vanishing in Iran, ex-FBI agent appears in hostage video: 'Help me'
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' Long after he vanished in Iran, retired FBI agent Robert Levinson has reappeared in a video and a series of photographs sent to his family over the past year.

The surprising proof of life transformed his mysterious disappearance into a hostage standoff. The problem for Levinson's family is the U.S. has no idea who has him.

In the 54-second video, sent in November 2010, Levinson pleaded for help and said he wasn't in good health.

The Associated Press delayed reporting on the video because the U.S. government said it would jeopardize efforts to bring Levinson home. Those efforts have stalled, and his wife plans to release the video herself with a personal appeal to the kidnappers.

Levinson's family says he was in Iran as a private detective, investigating cigarette smuggling.
