If you are from Central Minnesota, you most likely have heard the name Jodi Huisentruit. She was a graduate of Long Prairie High School and attended St. Cloud State University where she studied mass communications and speech communication and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in 1990. On June 27, 1995, Jodi was on her way to anchor the morning news at KIMT in Mason City when she was abducted. In May of 2001 she was declared legally dead. Since her disappearance almost 23 years ago, not much has been discovered. There has been some new potential evidence in recent months, but still not enough to bring Jodi home.
June 5th 2018 would've been Jodi's 50th birthday, and in memory, and with hopes to bring new evidence forward, the Find Jodi team has erected four billboards in Mason City, Iowa. These billboards contain pictures of Jodi, and the simple message, “Somebody knows something…is it YOU?”. The Find Jodi team ask that anyone with any knowledge of her disappearance come forward and share their information. Jodi's memory is also being honored this week with The Jodi’s Network of Hope 14th annual scholarship fundraiser being held at the Long Prairie Country Club on June 8th. Spots are still available if you want to golf in it (which I highly recommend as a previous recipient of the scholarship, and a previous employee of the LPCC) and you can sign up here.
If you have any information at all on Jodi's disappearance, no matter how small, please reach out to the Find Jodi team here, or call (970) 458-JODI.
