Jan. 27—The TV show "20/20" on Friday will feature the 1995 disappearance of Mason City, Iowa, television news anchor Jodi Huisentruit.

Huisentruit was the morning anchor at KIMT-TV, the CBS affiliate in Mason City, when she disappeared on her way to work on June 27, 1995.

Authorities believe someone grabbed Huisentruit, 27, just after 4 a.m. as she went to her red Mazda Miata in the parking lot of her apartment complex. Neighbors said later that they heard a scream about that time.

Police found Huisentruit's red high heels, blow dryer, hair spray and earrings strewn across the lot. Her bent car key lay on the ground near the Miata, and police believe she was unlocking her car door when she was taken.

A news release from ABC says the show features Mason City Police Department investigator Terrance Prochaska, who was assigned to the case in 2010, and includes a "ride-along, tracing Huisentruit's steps the night before her disappearance."

The show airs at 8 p.m.
