Parvaz called her fiance, Todd Barker, on April 28 and told him she was heading to Syria the next day. After she was reported missing, the Syrian government confirmed that she had been detained, but officials waited nearly a week before saying she had been deported to Iran. Parvaz is a citizen of Iran, Canada, and the United States.
Yesterday, Iranian officials said they have no information about Parvaz, Barker said.
The State Department in Washington has said it was striving to get details on Parvaz’s situation, according to the Associated Press, which reported that a spokesman said US officials were seeking assistance from Swiss diplomats who represent US interests in Iran.
