Search Warrant Remains Sealed In Long-Time Disappearance Case

Mason City, Iowa – Documents related to a search warrant against a person of interest in the Jodi Huisentruit case will remain sealed for another year.

In March 2017, the Mason City Police Department executed a search warrant against John Vansice, whose legal name is Arthur John Vansice  an acquaintance of Huisentruit and is believed to be one of the last people to see the 27-year-old KIMT anchor alive.

Vansice said he passed a polygraph test shortly after Huisentruit’s disappearance on June 27, 1995.

Vansice is named on the search warrant for GPS data from a 1999 Honda Civic and 2013 GMC 1500.

The warrant was sealed the same day, meaning no other information is publicly available about why the search was ordered, or what was discovered. In October 2017, a judge ordered the documents would remain sealed for another year.
