Loofe, who worked as a cashier at the Menards in Lincoln, was last seen in Wilber - 40 miles southwest of Lincoln. It remains unclear as to who killed Loofe and what was her cause of death. Family and friends have said she went on a date the night before with someone she met online.

George Loofe, Sydney's father, is the principal of Neligh-Oakdale High School, and his wife, Susie Loofe, is a teacher in the district. Chief Blimeiester says they continue to be persons of interest since they were the last to see her.
