The other day I was doing my spring house cleaning and started looking at a box of items that I had shelved and put away for storage. There were numerous newspapers that kept up with what was happening then. One stack of papers were saved because they were all papers that had stories of the abduction of Jodi Huisentruit. Looking through them I recognized stories that we covered in 1995 and every year since then.
Time marches on as the old radio newscasters referred to it.
There has been a continual connection with the disappearance of Jodi Huisentruit in 1995. So much history has been brought to the surface for examination and perhaps tracking down a new tip. It is reaching the point where “the younger generation” has no idea who Jodi Huisentruit is.
We can set a time line of where Jodi was on those days before she was abducted and close your eyes and remember what you can of what you was doing during the years 1995 to 2015. It will amaze you to look at those stories that we thought were big news.
Have people given up?
Has the Jodi Huisentruit story dropped from the front pages? Has the television news business dropped its appetite for “what’s new?”
No, it hasn’t, in fact just a couple of days ago I received a call from a television reporter wondering what we are doing for the anniversary of Jodi’s abduction. They clearly wanted to help carry the story forth.
Josh and I have started scanning many of the thousands of documents and videos of the Jodi story.
The Team agrees that we need to make this a priority to ensure we are giving our tipsters an opportunity to share the process with us.
We don’t weary as we have covered this story since 2002 and there are no indications we will walk away from it.
The donations are very important to expenses and we thank our team and we continue our prayers and we will solve the abduction and to be able to share that information with authorities who can hopefully put an end to this heart-wrenching story.
