In an exclusive interview with ABC’s Martha Raddatz for “This Week,” Secretary of State John Kerry said, “the United States had not abandoned former FBI agent Robert Levinson — the 65-year-old American who went missing in Iran seven years ago — and said he was personally involved in the effort to locate him.”

In his interview with Raddatz, Kerry rejected the Levinson family’s claim that Robert Levinson was working for a rogue CIA operation when he disappeared.

There hasn’t been progress in the sense that we don’t have him back. But to suggest that we have abandoned him or anybody has abandoned him is simply incorrect and not helpful,” Kerry said.

“The fact is, that I have personally raised the issue not only at the highest level that I have been involved with, but also through other intermediaries. So we don’t have any meeting with anybody who has something to do with Iran or an approach to Iran where we don’t talk to them about how we might be able to find not just Levinson, but we have two other Americans that we’re deeply concerned about,” he said.

    I agree with Kerry, suggesting that he has been abandoned isn’t helpful. Not giving up is important, all we can do is keep looking and to keep the FBI agent and his family in our thoughts and prayers.
