A man and woman claiming to be the "persons of interest" in the case of a missing Lincoln woman posted a video Wednesday morning on a Facebook page dedicated to finding Sydney Loofe.

The video, which has since been deleted, can be found here.

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 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 the "Finding Sydney Loofe" Facebook page. The video was deleted a few hours after it was posted.

Trail says he and Boswell have been cooperating with police.

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.

"I went to take her home, and she asked me to drop her off at a friend's house," Boswell said in the video. "And I did so. I gave her my number. We were planning on going to the casino that weekend. I haven't heard from her since."

Police say Loofe was last seen Wilber, Neb., the night before she was reported missing. Trail says he and Boswell live together in Wilber and they were the ones to provide that information to investigators.

Lincoln police have since confirmed searches are under way in Saline and Gage counties, looking for any evidence that could lead law enforcement to Loofe.

In the video, Trail said he has been "crucified on Facebook and crucified by newspapers." He ends the video by saying, "they (local authorities) are chasing around like dogs, I wish the family the best, I mean no disrespect to anyone and as far as the police department, (expletive) you."

Paige Folkers, Loofe's cousin, says the family is trying to collect themselves after seeing the video and have no further comment on the post or searches for now.
