Body of missing Lincoln woman Sydney Loofe found, family says Monday night
A WOMAN missing after a Tinder date with another woman was found dead after a suspect posted a cryptic Facebook message.
A 24-YEAR-OLD Nebraska woman has been found dead three weeks after she went on a Tinder date with another woman, after authorities traced her digital footprint and discovered a cryptic Facebook message posted by a suspect.
Sydney Loofe’s family released a statement saying that her body had been recovered.
“It’s with heavy hearts that we share this most recent update with you all … May God grant eternal rest unto thee. We love you Sydney,” the statement read.
“In a tragic ending to the search for Sydney Loofe, her parents announced Monday night that the Neligh native’s body has been recovered.”
Sydney is the daughter of George and Susie Loofe of Neligh and had been missing since Nov. 15. Multiple agencies, including the FBI, had been searching for the missing Lincoln resident.
The FBI, Lincoln police and various county sheriff’s offices involved in the search all declined to comment Monday night. Loofe’s family was not available Monday night to provide further details.
The missing woman’s parents, George and Susie Loofe, said in a message on the Finding Sydney Loofe Facebook page: “It’s with heavy hearts that we share this most recent update with you all.
“Please continue to pray for Sydney and our entire family.
“May God grant eternal rest unto thee. We love you Sydney.”
Loofe was reported missing on November 16 after she was last seen in Wilber, Nebraska on November 15.
Loofe’s cell phone was last pinged in Wilber, which is also where one of the two persons of interest has an apartment.
Several search and rescue groups had been combing lakes, rivers, and surrounding fields for the past week in a search for Loofe.
Bliemeister said roughly 40 officers from the Lincoln Police Department, Nebraska State Patrol, Saline and Clay county authorities, and the FBI are still canvassing Saline and Clay counties looking for evidence.
