(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Thursday marks 18 years since TV anchor Jodi Huisentruit disappeared while on her way to work in Mason city.

Authorities believe Jodi was abducted in her apartment parking lot in the early morning hours of June 27th, 1995. She hasn't been seen nor heard from Since.

We spoke with Jodi's sister about the difficulty of not having any answers so many years later.

"I have to be honest, at times my hope does dwindle. It is a long time and I'm so afraid something has been missed out there and now we're not going to find the evidence that's needed. It is a big worry," says Jodi's sister Joanne Nathe.

Jodi's story has been featured on national media and police have followed up on thousands of leads. Authorities have never named any suspects.
