Woman goes missing after posting about upcoming Tinder date
A Nebraska woman who told social media followers she was getting ready for a date has been missing for more than a week.
Sydney Loofe was last seen on Nov. 15 in Wilber, a rural town of less than 2,000 people southwest of Lincoln.
The 24-year-old had posted a message on Snapchat captioned “ready for my date,” and authorities said Tuesday that her disappearance is “concerning.”
Her friend Terra Gehrig told KLKN that she was going for a second date with a woman she had met on the dating app Tinder, and that her disappearance was completely out of character.
Loofe had posted about getting ready for a date, which a friend said was her second with someone she met online.
Family pointed out that Loofe’s cellphone pinged a tower the night of her disappearance, but has since been disabled. Her car and cat were also left at home.
Loofe is described as blond, five-foot-seven and 135 pounds. She has three tattoos, including a large yin-yang and the words “everything will be wonderful someday” on her arm.
Members of the Wilber community held a vigil for the missing woman on Tuesday night.
