At a time when the United States is seeking greater engagement with Iran, it is intensifying efforts to resolve the case of a former agent who disappeared there two years ago.
Two weeks ago, an Obama administration envoy, Richard C. Holbrooke, gave a letter to Iranian officials requesting information about the missing former agent, Robert Levinson, and two Americans imprisoned in Iran. Over the past year, a small team of F.B.I. agents, aided by consultants and businessmen with contacts in Iran, has also been seeking information about him.
