The family of the Retired FBI Agent That disappeared in Iran is now pleading for help to get him home. With the release of this video, the case has now gone from a missing persons to a hostage standoff.

After much investigation the US government has no idea as to who is holding the retired FBI agent.

"Please tell us your demands so we can work together to bring my father home safely," says Levinson's son David, seated beside his mother, Christine.

While this case has been treated as a diplomatic issue for the past few years, that seems to be changing in light of the this video. The 54 second hostage video shows Levinson looking tired and run down, but unharmed. He had lost a considerable amount of weight and he asked for help as his diabetes medicine was almost gone.
