LINCOLN – Lincoln Police Chief Jeff Bliemeister says there is evidence of foul play with the discovery of Sydney Loofe’s body in Clay County, Neb.

Bliemeister said an analysis of a “digital footprint” helped lead investigators to the rural area where the body was found.

He said police do not believe there is a current threat against the public in this case.

FBI Agent In Charge Randy Thysse offered sympathy to the Loofe family and credited cooperation between agencies.

The 24-year-old Lincoln woman  was reported missing Nov. 16 after she failed to turn up for work at Menards in Lincoln.

Her last Snapchat post said she was ready for a Tinder date.

Bliemeister said Aubrey Trail and Bailey Boswell continue to be persons of interest in the case. In a Facebook post, Boswell described going out with Loofe at Wilber. The body was found about 60 miles west of Wilber.

Bliemeister said investigators are still trying to determine what happened to Loofe and how long Loofe had been at that location.

Clay County is located south of Grand Island and east of Hastings.
