Police says they think the body of a missing Lincoln woman has been discovered in Clay County.
Lincoln Police Chief Jeff Bliemeister said forensic testing is being done to confirm it is Sydney Loofe.
“That’s why we’re making the statement that we believe it is Sydney,” Bliemeister told reporters at a news conference. “We have a strong belief based upon the entirety of the investigative process, but actual confirmation will come following the other testing, including the autopsy, itself.”
Loofe’s parents said she was going to meet with someone she met online November 15th. Police said Loofe was last seen in Wilber, 40 miles southwest of Lincoln.
Bliemeister said no arrests have been made at this time.
“Both Aubrey Trail and Bailey Boswell are considered persons of interest in the disappearance of Sydney Loofe,” he explained. “They are currently not charged with any offence directly related to this investigation.”
Aubrey Trail continues to talk with officers about the case, but Bliemeister could not discuss Bailey Boswell’s cooperation.
Digital evidence led the investigators to search the area where the body was discovered.
“It truly was a collaborative process,” Bliemeister said. “Through analysis of the digital evidence, and then putting people on the ground, including the Nebraska State Patrol and Sheriff Jeff Franklin and his people in Clay County that led to the actual discovery.”
He says based on current evidence, there is no public safety threat related to the case.
