Federal investigators have joined the search for a young Lincoln woman missing since mid-November.
FBI Special Agent Randall Thysse stated during a news conference in Lincoln this morning law officers need help in the search for 24-year-old Sydney Loofe.
“We’re here today to ask for the public’s help in obtaining information related to a missing woman, Sidney Loofe,” Thysse told reporters. “Sydney’s been missing for nearly two weeks and we extend our heartfelt prayers and wishes to the entire Loofe family and all the friends during this trying time.”
Loofe’s parents said she was to meet with someone she met online November 15th. Police said Loofe was last seen in Wilber, 40 miles southwest of Lincoln.
Police have been talking with 23-year-old Bailey Boswell and 51-year-old Aubrey Trail, the last two people known to have been with Loofe.
Thysse said many agencies have joined in the search.
“We are applying all of our resources to help bring Sydney home,” according to Thysse.
Her father, George Loofe, issued an emotional plea for help.
“In my opinion, someone knows something,” Loofe said. “Please, please, do the right thing.”
Lincoln police have provided some identifying marks on Loofe, including a yin-yang tattoo on one of her forearms and the word “Believe” with a cross on the inside of her left wrist. She also has the phrase, “Everything will be wonderful someday,” on her right bicep.
She is 5-foot-7 and weighs 135 pounds. She was last seen wearing a white Columbia jacket and a cream-colored shirt.
