LINCOLN, Neb. — The FBI says it will hold a news conference at the Lincoln Police department regarding the disappearance of a 24-year-old Lincoln woman.

FBI-Omaha spokesman Huston Pullen says officials will speak to the press at 9 a.m. local time Tuesday.

Sydney Loofe was reported missing Nov. 16. Family and friends said she went on a date the night before with someone she met online. Police say she was last seen in Wilber, 40 miles (64 kilometers) southwest of Lincoln.

Lincoln Police Chief Jeff Bliemeister (BLEYE’-meye-stur) has said that 51-year-old Aubrey Trail and 23-year-old Bailey Boswell were arrested on unrelated warrants. Bliemeister says the two had reported contact with Loofe.

The authorities didn’t say where Trail and Bosewell were arrested.
