By Calvin Palmer

Police in Connecticut are searching for a Yale graduate student and bride-to-be who has been missing since Tuesday.

Annie Le, 24, a third-year doctoral student in pharmacology, was last seen in a Yale research laboratory on Tuesday morning. Her purse, cell phone, credit cards and money were left in her office.

Police have used bloodhounds to search the lab and are continuing to comb the area, said Yale police chief James A Perotti. Footage from CCTV cameras is also being reviewed.

Le planned to get married on Sunday and was excited about getting married, according to Debbie Apuzzo, who works in the pharmacology department.

Police went to Le’s apartment on Lawrence Street in the East Rock section of the city. Her roommate, who declined to give her name, said police had told her not to discuss Le’s disappearance with anyone.

“I’m so worried,” she said.

Le is Asian, 4ft 11 ins and weighs 90 pounds. She has brown shoulder-length hair and brown eyes.

She was last seen wearing a knee-length brown skirt, a bright green short-sleeved T-shirt, brown shoes and a brown necklace.

Le’s hometown is Placerville, California and she gained her undergraduate degree from the University of Rochester in New York state.
