CBS's 48 Hours Will Look into Missing Anchor Case

It was almost been 25 years, but CBS’s show 48 Hours is going to look back into the case of a missing News Anchor.

On Saturday night, 48 Hours will look at the story of Jodi Huisentruit, who went missing 23 years ago as she left her apartment to anchor the morning show in Mason City, IW.

"We will certainly provide some new information, that's for sure," said Jim Axelrod, a senior national correspondent for CBS News who reported the episode.

Huisentruit was a 27-year-old anchor at KIMT. On June 27, 1995, when she failed to show up for work and hasn't been seen since.

Axelrod said the episode will feature new information about Huisentruit's car, which has remained a subject of interest in the case. It will also explore multiple theories about her disappearance, including a look at a convicted serial rapist who once lived near Huisentruit, according to a news release.

Some of the footage in the episode will be archival video from 1995, when "48 Hours" went to Mason City immediately after Huisentruit's disappearance, intending to produce an episode. When she remained missing, the episode never aired and the footage has not been seen.

"I think what separates this from a lot of other sorts of hours that we’ll see is that we had this incredible treasure trove of video from 1995 that’s never been seen, it’s never been on the air," Axelrod said.
