Search continues in Sydney Loofe case

Postado Dezembro 07, 2017

The body of a 24-year-old woman who went missing three weeks ago after going on a Tinder date has been found. Sydney Loofe's family confirms she is dead.

The searches, along Nebraska Highway 41, would be on a route of travel from Wilber to where a body thought to be Loofe's was found Monday in a farming area about 60 miles to the west in Clay County. Boswell's roommate, Aubrey Trail, is also considered a person of interest and is in custody.

According to PEOPLE, Lincoln Police Chief Jeff Bliemeister confirmed there was "evidence of foul play" in regards to Loofe's death, though the police have not officially confirmed this was a homicide.

Per the BBC, both Boswell and Trail posted videos on social media claiming their innocence before they were taken into custody in Missouri last week on unrelated outstanding warrants.

FBI Special Agent Randy Thysse said at a Lincoln news conference that investigators strongly believe the female body was that of Sydney Loofe, who was reported missing November 16.

Loofe had gone on a date with a woman she met online, then failed to show up at work the next day at a Menards in Lincoln. Bliemeister says neither has been charged with any crime related to Loofe's disappearance. Boswell and Trail are being held without bond.

Loofe's family announced Monday night that her body had been found, but the Federal Bureau of Investigation has said it is awaiting autopsy results.

A candlelight vigil in honor of Sydney Loofe is planned for Saturday, December 9 in Lincoln.
