On March 6, 2012, the FBI announced the offer of $1 Million for information leading to the direct and safe return of Robert Levinson. Because of Bob Levinson's 22 years with the FBI as a Special agent, the Agency is making every effort to get him returned safely. He is a husband, a father and a grandfather and suffers from diabetes and high blood pressure.
