Dateline: Mason City, Iowa

A sincere “Thank You!” for so many who participated in marking the 20th anniversary observance of the disappearance of Jodi Huisentruit.  Members of the FindJodi team gathered in Mason City early Saturday morning, June 27 to “finish Jodi’s journey” from her apartment to the premises of KIMT-TV.

It was so gratifying to see so many turn out for the event – members of Jodi’s family, college friends, former colleagues, former viewers, law enforcement, journalists and the media.  Special thanks to Abby Kleinschmidt (a longtime Huisentruit family friend from Alexandria, Minnesota), who presented a $1000 check to the FindJodi.com team.  Not one of us on the team takes a salary (we all donate our travel, time, and other costs), but expenses do add up in keeping a website of its kind up and running.

Many thanks, too, to the Upper Midwest media community for the great exposure you provided to our cause.  Gary Peterson, Jay Alberio and I had a lot of microphones and cameras pushed into our faces over the last few days! We had reps from a number of TV, radio and newspaper outlets from all around the upper Midwest.  Jodi’s case, along with that of Jacob Wetterling, represent just two of the most infamous missing persons cases in this section of the country.

We hope this 20th anniversary event will serve as a critical reminder to the JodiFlyer
