A Kansas college student, who has been missing since last Friday and who is believed to be the victim of foul play, apparently lived a double life as an Internet porn star. Investigators looking into the disappearance of Emily Sander, 18, say the teenager was also a porn star named Zoey Zane.

UPDATE: A body found about 50 miles east of El Dorado, Kansas, Thursday is believed to be that of missing college student Emily Sander. Authorities refused to give details about the discovery of the body or what condition it was in. An autopsy is scheduled.

Family members have confirmed that nude photos of Sander posted to the Web site were in fact Emily Sander and friends at Butler Community College confirmed that Sander was involved in Internet porn.

"She enjoyed it. She is a young teenage girl and she wanted to be in the movies and enjoyed movies. She needed the extra money," Nikki Watson, a close friend of Sander's told reporters. "Nobody in El Dorado knew besides her close friends."

A massive search was launched last weekend for Sander, who was last seen leaving a bar with a man identified at 24-year-old Israel Mireles. Investigators said the two met that night at the bar. Sander's car was found the next day in the parking lot of the bar.

When Mireles did not show up for work at a restaurant the next day, his boss went looking for him at a nearby motel where he was staying. The motel room appeared to be the scene of a struggle and a large amount of blood was in the room. Authorities began a manhunt for Mireles (left) and his 16-year-old girlfriend, Victoria Martens (right).

A rental car Mireles was driving was found in Texas Tuesday where Mireles has relatives. Police believe Mireles may be headed to Mexico.

Authorities have not established if Sander's pornography efforts had any connection with her disappearance. Sander was paid 45 percent of the revenue generated by the paid membership site. Investigators said the site had 30,000 subscribers who paid $39.95 a month.

Yeah… that’s what I got too. That’s some really good money. Screw school, do that for a few years and then invest.

It doesn’t say how long she had been doing it, but it would take a while and some organization to build up to 30,000 subscribers. I’d bet she had an agent and was only being paid a salary.

Your math is horrible, 45% of that revenue is 540K dollars a year, lol!

(5) Better at math. says:

what are you talking about.

$39.95/mos x 30,000/subscribers = $1,198,500/mos in Revenue

45% of $1,1985,000 = $539,325/mos (her take)

$539,325 x 12/mos a year = $6,471,900/ann

The math above is correct, but no way she was taking that much home. after taxes, that’s like $4-$4.2MM annualized.

Anyways, she was probably only making a few hundred bucks an hour. Just like a prostitute, someone else was benefitting from her customer base.
