June 27 will mark 27 years since 27-year-old TV news anchor Jodi Huisentruit went missing from Mason City, Iowa. The anniversary takes on a special meaning this year.

“It’s a somber date,” FindJodi team member Scott Fuller told the Twin Cities Pioneer Press in a story published June 15, 2022. “Jodi has now been gone as long as she was alive.”

Fuller, who works for KAUS-AM/FM in Austin, Minn., said the team — along with Huisentruit’s family members and friends — will mark the anniversary by gathering outside KIMT-TV in Mason City where Jodi worked to display personal photos of the Long Prairie, Minn., native, in hopes “they will bring some light to who Jodi was in life, and what she meant to those who knew and loved her.”

People are being asked to “Leave a light on for Jodi” by leaving a porch light on or lighting a candle in her memory during the weekend of June 24-26, and to use the hashtag #LightsForJodi while posting photos on social media or expressing concern or remembrances, Fuller said. is a website and podcast devoted to solving the case of Huisentruit’s disappearance.
