The wife of a missing FBI agent appealed for the public's help in tracking him down Tuesday, saying in a letter that 35-year-old Stephen Ivens is “more than just a missing person.”
Authorities have been engaged in a massive manhunt since Ivens left on foot from his home in the 1700 block of Scott Road in Burbank Friday morning. He was reported missing by his family a short time later.
On Tuesday, his wife, Thea Ivens, released a personal appeal for his safe return.
“Steve, if you are out there listening right now, your wife wants to let you know, ‘Babe, we are in this together for better or for worse. I love you, no matter what happens.’ Your child wants you to know, ‘Daddy’s work? Daddy home?’”
A 40-member search-and-rescue team from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department joined about a dozen Burbank police officers and 100 FBI agents in the search for him on Saturday, but little progress has been reported in the search.
