The wife of a former FBI agent who went missing in Iran last year is seeking a meeting with Iran's president, Mahmud Ahmadinejad, while he's in New York this week.

Christine Levinson's husband Robert was last seen on March 8, 2007 on Kish Island off the southern coast of Iran, where according to his family he had gone to seek information on cigarette smuggling.

Last year, his wife unsuccessfully sought a meeting with Ahmadinejad. We interviewed her here about the case.
