Neither had been charged with a crime related to Loofe's disappearance or death.
Bliemester said police believe a body found about 75 miles southwest of Lincoln in rural Clay County is the Lincoln woman who was last seen November 15th near Wilber, Nebraska. May God grant eternal rest unto thee. "We love you Sydney", they wrote. Few details were released.
Wilber was also the last place where Loofe's cellphone pinged.
Nebraska authorities and the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced that they believe a body found in Clay County is Sydney Loofe.
Bliemeister said agents have a "solid conviction" that the body found in an open region of Clay County is that of Loofe, however formal affirmation will be made in coming days, USA Today reports.
Sydney Loofe's coworkers and family said it was out of character when she didn't arrive for her shift as a cashier at the north Lincoln store.
Bailey Boswell, who was named a person of interest along with her 51-year-old roommate Aubrey Trail, confirmed on social media she had gone on a date with Loofe, the Omaha World Herald reported.
In a second video-posted Friday before the pair turned themselves into authorities following an arrest warrant accusing Trail of being a felon in possession of a firearm-Trail denied his and Boswell's involvement in Loofe's disappearance.
When contacted by DailyMail.com on Tuesday, Saline County sheriff's department officials refused to say what charges the two were being held on. No one has been charged, although authorities found two persons of interest who released a freakish Facebook video last week.More news: SIM-free iPhone X now available from Apple in the US
Yes, Bailey Boswell said, the two women had swiped right on the dating app and met up. This follows a post Monday night on the Facebook page Finding Syndey Loofe, which linked to an announcement on the website for the Antelope County News confirming the discovery of her body.
In the video, Boswell covers her head with a hooded sweatshirt and wears large-rimmed sunglasses. The authorities say Trail faces a charge of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.
Loofe disappeared back on November 16.
Bliemiester on Tuesday said investigators have explored the claims in the video extensively. He sarcastically added that he is "just a criminal so you're going to believe" his claims.
"We're not trying to defend anything", he said. 'You know, in America, I sure thought it was a trial first, but I guess not'.
Aubrey Trail's booking mugshot in Missouri. She speaks only for a few minutes at the end of the clip, recalling her two dates with Loofe, who she calls a "sweet and unbelievable girl". Boswell said they drove around smoking marijuana and "hit it off" before Boswell dropped Loofe off at a friend's house. I haven't heard from her since.
"We're continuing to speak with Aubrey Trail and we'll continue to do so as long as he's willing", Bliemeister said on Tuesday.
They added that they have been speaking to Trail while he's behind bars.
