Case of Minnesota teen missing since 2016 to be featured on national TV

Jeremy Jourdain's disappearance has gone unsolved.
Publish date:

The disappearance of a Minnesota teenager more than two years ago will feature on a television show about unsolved cases.

"In Pursuit with John Walsh," which is broadcast on Investigation Discovery, will tell the story of Jeremy Jourdain for an episode that goes out on Wednesday.

Jourdain, of Cass Lake, was last seen leaving a party on the 500 block of Wood Ave, in the Nymore area of Bemidji, on Halloween 2016.

The 6-foot-4-inch, 17-year-old Native American was last seen wearing a blue and grey hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, and black and white Air Jordan shoes.

His disappearance sparked a major search effort, including the use of drones, a police helicopter, and a bloodhound to track him down, all without success.

Similar efforts to ping his cellphone also proved unsuccessful.

A year after he went missing, Bemidji police said they have received and investigated more than 120 leads in the case and expanded an already extensive search to find him.

"In Pursuit with John Walsh" has partnered with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to feature two missing children's cases in each episode in the hope they prompt new leads, according to the Bemidji Pioneer.
