Woman Who Disappeared After Tinder Date Found Dead


A 24-year-old Nebraska woman who went missing after an online date has been found dead three weeks after she disappeared.

The family of Sydney Loofe made the announcement Monday night on a Facebook page they'd created to help raise awareness about Loofe's disappearance.

"It's with heavy hearts that we share this most recent update with you all," the message reads. "Please continue to pray for Sydney and our entire family. May God grant eternal rest unto thee. We love you Sydney."

The Antelope County Sheriff's Office also shared the news on its official Facebook page, "Our thoughts and prayers are with the Loofe family … No other details are known at this time."

The FBI is expected to release more details at a press conference scheduled for 8:45 a.m. (9:45 a.m. EDT) Tuesday.

Loofe, of Lincoln, was last heard from by her family on Nov. 15. That evening, she went on a second date with a woman she'd met online. The woman she was last seen with, 23-year-old Bailey Boswell, admitted she was with Loofe in the hours before she was reported missing, police said.

Boswell, of Wilber, was arrested last week in an unrelated drug case. Her roommate, 51-year-old Aubrey Trail, was also picked up on a charge unrelated to Loofe's disappearance. Authorities said Trail faces a charge of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.

Prior to their arrests, Boswell and Trail posted several bizarre videos online in which they addressed reports about their possible involvement in Loofe's disappearance.

"I've never killed anyone in my life and I've never hurt a female in my life, so take that for whatever the hell that's worth," Trail says in one of the videos.

Despite being named "persons of interest" by authorities, investigators have not filed charges against Boswell or Trail in Loofe's disappearance.

Austrian data privacy activist takes aim at 'forced consent'

VIENNA/LONDON (Reuters) - As Europe's new privacy law took effect on Friday, one activist wasted no time in asserting the additional rights it gives people over the data that companies want to collect about them. Austrian Max Schrems filed complaints against Google, Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, arguing they were acting illegally by forcing users to accept intrusive terms of service or lose access. "You have to have a 'yes or no' option," Schrems said in an interview recorded in Vienna before he filed the complaints in various European jurisdictions.
