MASON CITY, Ia. (AP) A cable television show that tells the stories of missing persons will spotlight the enduring mystery of Jodi Huisentruit, the Mason City, Iowa television anchor who vanished in 1995.

The one-hour episode of the show ``Disappeared'' is scheduled to air Monday on the Investigation Discovery Channel at 9 p.m.

Crews were in Iowa and Huisentruit's native Minnesota filming for the show last summer.

Huisentruit went missing while on her way to work the morning shift at KIMT-TV in Mason City. She was 27, and from Long Prairie.

Witnesses say they heard screams outside Huisentruit's apartment complex, where investigators found personal belongings such as jewelry and shoes scattered near her car.

Investigators have never found Huisentruit, who was declared legally dead in 2001. No one has been charged in her disappearance.
