University of Utah senior Mackenzie Lueck vanished on June 17 after she ordered a Lyft from the Salt Lake City airport
Missing University of Utah nursing student Mackenzie Lueck is a ‘sugar baby’ who sought out men over the age of 35 online, DailyMail.com can reveal.
Lueck, 23, disappeared on June 17 after landing in Salt Lake City, Utah, and taking a Lyft ride to meet a mysterious man in a park around 2am.
The college senior’s social media accounts reveal that she considered herself a sugar baby, and boasted about having at least two unidentified sugar daddies which she found through online sites Seeking Arrangement and Tinder.
DailyMail.com obtained screenshots of Lueck’s posts made nearly three months ago in a private Facebook group where Lueck gave advice on how she finds sugar daddies – wealthy older men who lavish younger women with gifts and money in return for company or sexual favors.
‘Try tinder and be blunt about it. Mine says ”I want a SD/SB relationship with a real connection.” If [they] don’t know what a SD/SB is, tell them bluntly sugar daddy and sugar baby. But if they don’t know, they aren’t really worth your time,’ Lueck’s comment reads.
‘Set your age preferences from 35+. You’ll have the most luck there. Private message me, if you have more questions! I have experience.’

About three months ago Lueck wrote these comments in a private Facebook group offering advice on how to be a sugar baby, ‘Try tinder and be blunt about it. Mine says ”I want a SD/SB relationship with a real connection”’
Salt Lake City police say they are looking into the 23-year-old’s dating life by reviewing her social media accounts and dating profiles
This is the Instagram account Lueck maintained aside from her own personal page, where she posted suggestive photos
In another message Lueck revealed she has two sugar daddies and which sites she uses to obtain them.
‘I have some experience on seeking arrangements, online only, tinder, and currently have two lol.’
Aside from her personal Instagram, Lueck also operates an alias account under the name @NovaBaby96, with a profile photo that shows a woman in panties that read ‘Daddy’ on the back.
This comes after Lueck’s friends came forward to police to say she was casually dating several people and was interested in older men. Authorities didn’t specify if they’ve spoken with anyone she was dating.
On Tuesday, Salt Lake City police shared images of her at the airport retrieving her luggage, which showed Lueck with her hair in a bun wearing a white hooded sweater, black pants and sandals.
She carried a large blue handbag with her, a small black backpack and a wheeled brown suitcase.
During a police update press conference on Tuesday, Assistant Police Chief Tim Doubt said they’re looking into her social media and dating profiles.
‘In regards to her online activity, we are aware of this aspect and continue to look into all facets of her life for leads into her disappearance,’ Doubt said.
On Tuesday Salt Lake City Police shared these images of Lueck after she got off her plane at Salt Lake City International Airport at 2.09am. She was returning to Utah after spending the weekend in LA to attend her grandmother’s funeral

From the airport, Lueck ordered a Lyft ride to Hatch Park in North Salt Lake at 2.40am. Her driver said he saw her jump into another car just before 3am with an unknown individual.
The Lyft driver has been cleared in her disappearance, authorities said.
The park where she was left by the Lyft driver is located eight miles from her apartment. Police have said she didn’t seem distressed when she met up with the person.
‘Mackenzie, in the case, if you just want to be left alone please just let us know that you’re safe,’ Doubt said at the press conference.
Authorities said they have not been able to verify the make of the vehicle she jumped into or the stranger she met at the park.
‘The description we have is vague. It could’ve been a male or female,’ Doubt said.
‘We have exhausted all avenues of determining this information and are asking that person please call us.
‘We see no indication that she has gone off the grid before.
‘This behavior is uncharacteristic.’
Her friends say that Lueck, who is due to graduate this year, would never cut off communication from her friends or miss midterm exams, a wedding, or a flight back to Los Angeles this week.
Police say they’ve received over 125 tips related to her case and there’s no indication of foul play in her disappearance.

On Tuesday police revealed that Lueck had encountered Salt Lake City police several times in the last four years but her disappearance does not appear to be related to these incidents.
She received a speeding ticket in 2015, encountered police in connection with an assault in 2018 and claimed lost property earlier this year.
Doubt did not specify if she was a witness or victim in that assault cast but said all of her previous cases are closed.
‘I honestly am just as confused as everyone else,’ Lueck’s sorority sister Kennedy Stoner told
‘I don’t know why she would be meeting someone that late, especially at a park, just to — I don’t know where she would go. I don’t know anyone that lives in North Salt Lake. So I’m just as confused. I don’t understand it.’
She says Lueck doesn’t typically travel alone and may have been impacted by the death of her grandmother after returning to Utah from the funeral.
