Annie Le: Search Dogs Called In for Missing Yale Student
Le, a doctoral student in pharmacology, was last seen at her laboratory Tuesday, and her purse, cell phone, credit cards and money were found in her office. Le, who planned to get married Sunday, has not contacted her family, co-workers or friends since.
State police with bloodhounds searched the area where Le was last seen, and authorities were continuing to search nearby, Yale Police Chief James Perotti said in a statement. The FBI was assisting, and investigators also were reviewing images from closed-circuit cameras, Perotti said. Her fiance, professors, colleagues, friends and family also were helping, Perotti said.
Le was excited about getting married and is energetic and conscientious, said Debbie Apuzzo, who works in the pharmacology department.
Le, 4-foot-11 and weighs 90 pounds, is of Asian descent and has brown hair and brown eyes. She is from Placerville, Calif., the Yale Daily News reported. She received her undergraduate degree in bioscience in 2007 from the University of Rochester in New York, said Sharon Dickman, a university spokeswoman.
Her lab is in the Yale Medical School complex, slightly less than a mile from the main campus.
