The body of a young woman has been found weeks after she vanished following a Tinder date.
Her parents believe Sydney Loofe, 24, went missing the day after going on a date with a woman she had met online, now identified as 23-year-old Bailey Boswell.
Loofe reportedly texted her friend to say she had been on a date with the woman the night before and was planning to go out again that night. But after sharing the Snapchat selfie with friends, Sydney failed to show up at work the next morning. The family say they are distraught, that the disappearance was suspicious and they fear she may have been abducted.
Her body was recovered this week by officers who had been combing wilderness near her home. Loofe’s family confirmed the discovery in a statement. Part of it read: ‘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.’
It was Loofe’s second date with Boswell. She has been arrested on unrelated charges along with her 51-year-old roommate, Aubrey Trail. Police say the pair are people of interest in Loofe’s case. The duo posted a bizarre video on the Finding Sydney Loofe Facebook page pleading their innocence.
Boswell is seen with a hood up wearing big sunglasses while Trail says: ‘I’m a person of interest and I’m not really running from anything. Naturally I can’t go home now because my house has been swarmed, searched, and I’m being looked for. ‘But I assumed I have a warrant out of state now so that kind of cancels that out. So this has pretty much caused me my life and I appreciate that from the FBI and all the other agencies. ‘I pray for Sydney and I hope she’s found soon.’
