Investigators have a strong belief that the body is Sydney Loofe, but are waiting for an autopsy and other testing to confirm her identity.
Lincoln Police Chief Jeff Bliemeister says analysis of digital evidence combined with work by the Clay County Sheriff's Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation lead to the discovery of the body. The officers also discovered evidence that a crime was involved in her death.
Bliemeister said two people named by law enforcement as persons of interest in Loofe's disappearance - 51-year-old Aubrey Trail and 23-year-old Bailey Boswell - were named as persons of interest through their own admissions on social media.
FBI Special Agent Randy Thysse said at a Lincoln news conference that investigators strongly believe a female body, found in southeast Nebraska's Clay County, is that of Sydney Loofe, who was reported missing November 16. Chief Blimeiester says they continue to be persons of interest since they were the last to see her.

In a video posted to Facebook last week, Trail said, "We've pretty much made a decision to turn ourselves in and see where this goes". "Thus they remain persons of interest".
Bliemeister stressed that investigators believe there's no ongoing threat to the public, although no one had been charged in Loofe's disappearance.
