Body of woman who vanished after Tinder date found

07 December 2017

She was last seen in Wilber, 40 miles (64 kilometers) southwest of Lincoln, police have said. Boswell says she and her roommate - 51-year-old Aubrey Trail - were being unfairly targeted by authorities searching for the missing 24-year-old.

Randy Thysse, special agent in charge of the Omaha division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, said it was a "collaborative effort" that included a "digital footprint" that led to the discovery of Loofe's body in a rural part of Clay County, which is southwest of Lincoln toward central Nebraska. Bliemeister added that law enforcement believes there is evidence of foul play. Several law-enforcement agencies including the Federal Bureau of Investigation have been involved in the search.

The family posted on the Finding Sydney Loofe Facebook page: "It's with heavy hearts that we share this most recent update with you all".

Last night Sydney's parents issued a Facebook post asking, "Please continue to pray for Sydney and our entire family". May God allow everlasting rest unto thee.

Police kept an eye on Trail because he lived in the city of Wilber, the last known location of Loofe's phone before it was turned off, the Daily Beast reported.

Ms Loofe had posted a Snapchat image before the meeting with an emoji and caption: "Ready for my date".

Loofe, according to the Journal Star, grew up in Neligh, where her father is a high school principal and her mother works for the school district.

"Bailey Boswell and Aubrey Trail are two people that we need to speak with, and (we) believe they have additional information concerning Sydney's whereabouts", Police Chief Jeff Bliemeister told reporters at a November 28 press briefing. "I'm a person of interest and I'm not really running from anything". Their social media comments led investigators to believe they may have been the last people with Loofe before she disappeared, Bliemeister said. Boswell said they drove around smoking marijuana and "hit it off" before Boswell dropped Loofe off at a friend's house.

Authorities said Tuesday the body had been found in rural Clay County, not near a town.

Sydney Loofe shared a Snapchat story with the caption "ready for my date" before she was last seen in Wilber, Nebraska, on November 15. 'She has a very good heart'. "We're not trying to make you believe anything". "She was anticipating getting back home that night".

Trail said in the video, "As far as I know, I'm not wanted for anything".

Trail said on his video that he "wasn't running from anything".

The Loofe family took to social media the following days to raise awareness about her disappearance in hopes of aiding the search.
