TEHRAN, Iran – A US Navy veteran detained in Iran in July is being held in connection with a "private complaint" More news agency reported on Friday.

Michael White, 46, has been imprisoned since July and is the first known American to be imprisoned in Iran since the presidency of Donald Trump. His family says he traveled to Iran to visit his girlfriend he met online and was arbitrarily detained.

The Friday report quoted Prosecutor Gholamali Sadeghi as saying that the case is still being "investigated" without further elaboration. He confirmed no reports that the man is being taken to safety. Under Iranian law, a private complaint would relate to allegations made by a citizen, not to the state.
