Authorities have recovered the body of a Nebraska woman whose disappearance after a Tinder date last month triggered a massive search and bizarre social media posts from two persons of interest in the tragic mystery. Lincoln Police Chief Jeff Bliemeister said Tuesday that "analysis of digital evidence" led authorities to a body in rural Clay County they believe is that of Sydney Loofe, 24, who vanished three weeks ago. "We do believe that there is evidence of foul play," Bliemeister said. Bliemeister expressed a "strong belief" that the body is that of Loofe, who was reported missing Nov. 16 after failing to show up at her job at a Lincoln home improvement store. He said formal confirmation would be made in the coming days. Bliemeister provided no further details on the cause of death or circumstances surrounding the discovery. Investigators had been using Loofe's cellphone signal to retrace her movements in the hours before she disappeared. www.youtube.com
