The almost 25-year-old mystery of what happened to Jodi Huisentruit continues to get a lot of national media coverage.
The most recent was an ”Up and Vanished” episode that aired last weekend.
The network publicity on Jodi’s disappearance is similar to what happened in the case of 11-year-old Jacob Wetterling, who was abducted at gunpoint near his home in rural St. Joseph, Minnesota, in 1989.
But when Jacob’s case was finally solved 27 years later, the break came close to home. His burial site was on a farm in the same county where Jacob and his killer lived.
Ironically, Jodi covered Jacob’s abduction as a reporter in Minnesota.
The possibility that Jodi could also be found close to home is why FindJodi.com put up billboards in Mason City, Iowa, hoping that someone locally will be prompted to come forward with new information.
If Jodi’s killer is still in Mason City, he can’t escape our billboards. With Jodi’s smiling face on them, they are a daily reminder she is not forgotten.
It’s also why we believe continued local and regional news coverage, like we have seen in the past few days like in the case of KTTC-TV, is critical to keeping Jodi’s unsolved case visible in that northern Iowa community.
A community where someone could still be keeping a secret about what they know about what happened to Jodi.
Someone knows something. Is it YOU?
Don’t make Jodi’s family and friends mark another anniversary without answers.
It is time to bring Jodi home.
If you have any information on Jodi’s disappearance, please come forward.
