50 people in 50 days: Morning news anchor never makes it to broadcast

Editor's note: Nancy Grace's new show on HLN, "Nancy Grace: America's Missing," is dedicated to finding 50 people in 50 days. As part of the effort, which relies heavily on audience participation, CNN.com's news blog This Just In will feature the stories of the missing.

This is the 28th case, and it will be shown Wednesday at 9 p.m. on HLN.

Jodi Huisentruit was running late for work as the morning anchor at KIMT in Mason City, Iowa, on June 27, 1995. When her producer called to wake her up, Huisentruit said she'd be there in 20 minutes. She lived only five minutes from the station, but she never made it there.

When police went to check on her apartment, everything appeared normal, but outside, police found signs of a struggle near Huisentruit's Mazda Miata. Her hairdryer, hairspray, a pair of red shoes and earrings were strewn across the parking lot. Drag marks were found nearby, but the 27-year-old blonde was nowhere to be found.

Rumors of her working in a casino in Reno, Nevada, or being abducted by an Arab sheik never developed into anything credible, and her body has never been found. Four years ago, Huisentruit was declared legally dead by a judge in Cerro Gordo County, Iowa. But her family and friends are still looking for answers.

Also gone were pillows from Rachel’s bedroom and a blue blanket. The temperature outside was below zero, and police say they believe the girl didn’t leave on her own. There was no forced entry to the home and the honor roll student’s coat, shoes and purse were all left behind.
