We’ve received confirmation ‘Disappeared‘ on Investigation Discovery will spotlight Jodi’s case on:

The Discovery team traveled to Spring Valley, Minnesota last summer to learn more about Jodi, her life and her disappearance.
Here is an excerpt from a write-up on the visit from my blog:
This episode of Disappeared will feature Jodi’s disappearance and will be told by not only Gary and myself, but Jodi’s sister Joanne Nathe, Mason City Police Investigators, and others. Producers will add in professional recreations in showing what may have happened in Jodi’s final hours. Recreations are tough to do well. And I’ve seen them done many times in TV News. The outcome is usually pretty cheesy. The ID team has the formula down: high quality video and very tight shots with quick movement and great sound. I was surprised to see John (our photographer) use a Canon still camera with video capabilities to capture a lot of the recreations during our shoot. He made it look effortless. We can’t wait to see the final product.
We are also very excited that Jodi’s case will be brought back into the public spotlight for all to see. We hope the episode (which will likely run several times in the future), will reach people who knew nothing about Jodi’s case. Perhaps someone with some valuable information will come forward as a result as well.
Check back for updates.
