A rally will take place Saturday in South Florida to again bring attention to the fate of a Coral Springs man missing in Iran.

This month marks nine years since Bob Levinson disappeared.

In the past his family has received pictures indicating he was kidnapped.

They consider him the longest-held American civilian hostage.

South Florida Congressman Ted Deutch has been working for his return.

"We have to view Bob Levinson as not as a member of the Levinson family, but as if he were a member of our own family, because he is, as an American," said U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch/ (D) 21st District

Congressman Deutch recently passed a resolution focusing on finding Levinson.

The rally is Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Coral Springs Center for the Arts.

The family has created a Facebook page dedicated to finding Levinson.
