Authorities are investigating the discovery of human remains found by a hiker last week in Mitchell County.
The remains were found near the Greenbelt trail near Mitchell, about five miles northwest of Osage, on Monday, July 12th.
A media statement from authorities said, “Further investigation continues with assistance from the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and the Office of the Iowa State Medical Examiner. Identification of the remains is ongoing, but law enforcement can say with certainty that it is not Jodi Huisentruit, missing from Mason City, since June of 1995.”
Law enforcement is asking the public to call 641-732-4740 with any information they may have.
