The body of a young woman who vanished after going on a Tinder date has been found.
Sydney Loofe, 24, went missing the day after going on a date with a woman she had met online, now identified as 23-year-old Bailey Boswell.
Loofe reportedly texted her friend to say she had been on a date with the woman the night before and was planning to go out again that night. But after sharing the Snapchat selfie with friends, Sydney failed to show up at work the next morning.
Her family say they are distraught.
They also say that the disappearance was suspicious and they fear she may have been abducted.
Her body was recovered this week by officers who had been combing wilderness near her home.
Loofe’s family confirmed the discovery in a statement. Part of it read: ‘It’s with heavy hearts that we share this most recent update with you all…May God grant eternal rest unto thee. We love you Sydney.’
It was Loofe’s second date with Boswell who has been arrested on unrelated charges along with her 51-year-old roommate, Aubrey Trail. Police say the pair are people of interest in Loofe’s case. The duo posted a bizarre video on the Finding Sydney Loofe Facebook page pleading their innocence.
Boswell is seen with a hood up wearing big sunglasses while Trail says: ‘I’m a person of interest and I’m not really running from anything. Naturally I can’t go home now because my house has been swarmed, searched, and I’m being looked for.
‘But I assumed I have a warrant out of state now so that kind of cancels that out. So this has pretty much caused me my life and I appreciate that from the FBI and all the other agencies. ‘I pray for Sydney and I hope she’s found soon.’
About six months after dissolution of his cabinet and the dissolution of Transition Committees in the 27 council areas of Imo state, Governor Rochas Okorocha yesterday swore in 28 Commissioners including his own sister.
Okorocha’s sister, Mrs Ogechi Ololo was given new portfolio – wait for it – Commissioner for Happiness and Couples’ fulfilment……..
Addressing the new appointees, the controversial governor charged them not to betray the trust reposed in them while stressing that they were appointed to prove their mettle in the service of the State and its people.
Okorocha charged the new appointees to work as if they had only a few weeks to deliver and leave their marks in their respective Ministries and Local Governments with a view to making themselves as men and women on rescue mission as they had come to be part of the success story of the administration and contribute their own quotas.
He said: “You are the privileged group that has the opportunity to make names for yourselves and put your signatures on the sands of time. I want to remind all of you that this appointment is not business as usual. We shall not tolerate any sharp practice or corruption of any type. Neither shall we accept indolence or laziness.
You have been called to duty to help us achieve our vision in the Rescue Mission Project. “At this moment I charge you all to be good ambassadors of the Rescue Mission wherever you find yourselves. To the Transition Committee Chairmen, you must ensure that on-going projects are completed especially the Schools and Chapels”.
He reiterated that what his administration has achieved so far has exceeded all that the previous administrations in the State, both Civilian and Military put together had achieved pointing out that anybody with contrary claim on that should make it public. Adding that the government had completed over 1000 projects across the state and counting.
Ololo had held previous offices such as Special Adviser, Domestic Deputy Chief of Staff, Domestic and she is incharge of the controversial annual Christmas tree decoration. She is also known to handle contracts for the state and easily falls into the bracket of the most influential persons in the Imo state Government House
Monique Price is a self confessed sex addict who believes she has had sex more than 1,000 times with more than 100 sexual partners.
She’s not bragging about her excellent dating skills, though. Monique says that her obsession with sex almost ruined her life.
Monique’s addiction began when she first had underage sex at age 14.
At 15 she engaged in group sex with multiple men, pretending she was 18 so she could be involved. When she went to her GP about what she described as ‘uncontrollable urges’, she was told she was just experiencing teenage hormones. From that first sexual experience, Monique began regularly meeting older men online and lying about her age so she could have sex.
She snuck men into her house when her parents weren’t around, sent naked photos of herself to people online, and began filming porn to satisfy her insatiable sexual desires. ‘When I was a young girl I could feel my body having these uncontrollable urges and weird feelings,’ Monique explains. ‘When I went to the doctor he told me it was teenage hormones. ‘He asked me if I was sexually active but of course I lied because my mum was in the room. ‘The first time I had sex when I was 14 it was so painful and I never thought I’d do it again.
‘But then I started chatting to men online and I would lie about my age so that they would meet me. ‘Having the orgy was a new and wild experience to me and after that I became absolutely addicted to sex and needed it all the time.’ Things started to spiral out of control. By 25, she’d had sex with more than 100 different sexual partners, and had been diagnosed with multiple STDs – her constant and impulse sex meant she hadn’t been using protection, even when she was pregnant. ‘I didn’t realise what I was doing was dangerous because I was only thinking about myself,’ says Monique. ‘I was definitely a bad mother.
“I would put my children to sleep and then leave the house to have sex and wouldn’t come back for days”
Everyone in my family was angry with me and did not trust me at all.
‘Even when I was pregnant with my fourth child, the desire for sex just get stronger because of the hormones and I would have unprotected sex with lots of different guys. ‘I picked up STDs that could have killed my unborn child and still I didn’t stop because my body didn’t want me to.
Monique who is now speaking out to raise awareness and help others said: ‘I was so stuck in a deep dark hole and didn’t know how to get out. I thought my life was over.’
It was only when she met Brandon, a forklift driver, that Monique began to have hope again. What started as a one night stand turned into a relationship, with Brandon proposing eight months later.

It was Brandon who helped Monique to deal with her addiction, allowing her to view sex as ‘loving and romantic’.
‘When I met Brandon he wasn’t like any other guy I had met before,’ Monique says. ‘He made me feel so safe and I fell in love with him straight away. He saved my life. ‘I realised that he loved me because he wasn’t like any other man I had been with before. He actually cared about me and wanted to start a family with me.
‘Brandon kept begging me to give up my sex addiction before I got myself killed but at the time I didn’t see myself as a mother or wife material. I even wanted to give our unborn baby up for adoption. ‘But he made me realise my mistakes and helped me take back control of my life.
He helped me start going to sex addiction therapy groups which I still attend now.
Asylum seekers in Germany are being offered money towards new kitchens, bathrooms and rent if they go back to their home countries.
Angela Merkel’s government has launched the new incentive initiative in a bid to increase the number of refugees returning to their country of origin.
The “Your country. Your future. Now!” scheme was launched by the Federal Ministry of the Interior in the wake of uncertain elections – which were dominated by the issue of immigration.
But refugee support organisations have hit out at the scheme and said it amounts to bribery and is underhand.
Under existing schemes, each refugee was given €1,200 to leave the country. This will now be topped up by €3,000 per family and €1,000 for each individual.
According to the Bild am Sonntag newspaper the money can be used for home renovations or rental fees.
“When you voluntarily decide to return by the end of February, in addition to start-up help you can provisionally receive housing cost help for the first 12 months in your homeland,” Thomas de Maizière, the German interior minister, told the newspaper.
Günter Burkhardt, the head of Pro Asyl, told the Times: “He’s trying to entice people to give up their rights in the basest manner.”
