The FBI issued a news release tonight saying it will be holding a press conference at 8:45 a.m. Thursday at the Lincoln Police Department. It stated other law enforcement would be part of the briefing as well.
The FBI confirmed to 3 News Now that this is in connection to the missing woman, Sydney Loofe.
Tonight, law enforcement focused their search in Gage and Saline counties, where they spent several hours this evening searching a pond just northwest of Wilbur High School. Police have not said what led them to search the pond or what exactly they're searching for.
Lincoln Police said Tuesday they were looking for 51-year-old Aubrey Trail and 23-year-old Bailey Boswell, calling them "persons of interests" in the case. Loofe's family reported her missing on Nov. 16 when she didn't show up to work that day.
The pair, under the profile AubreyBailey Trawell, posted a video Wednesday to Facebook. The video was deleted a few hours after it was posted.
Boswell said that on Nov. 15, she picked Loofe up for their second date, and that the two drive around smoking weed. Boswell said she then took Loofe to her house, where they smoked "wax" and "shatter," before dropping her off at a friend's house.
They two claimed they had nothing to do with her disappearance.
Police urge anyone with information related to Loofe's disappearance to contact police.
