NEW HAVEN, Connecticut—It's a mystery that stretches from coast to coast. Twenty-four year old Annie Le was last seen on Tuesday morning at Yale University. The graduate student from Placerville disappeared just days before her wedding.
"She has a lot of good friends, a wonderful fiance she's going to marry on Sunday. We all love her a lot," said Tamara Bancroft, a friend of Le's.
Le grew up in El Dorado County and graduated from Union Mine High School in 2003. She was an honor student, who was involved in clubs and excelled on campus.
"Just a top human being. She was one of the top students in her class and excelled in science. One of her science teachers said that she's the best student she ever had," said Tony DeVille, principal at Union Mine High School.
Le also worked as a volunteer at Marshall Hospital in Placerville during high school. Those who know the young woman say they're hopeful she'll be found.
"We're hoping for a happy ending," said DeVille.
"We're just praying that she's just going to pop up somewhere and everything is okay. We're not going to look at the worst here," said Debbie Apuzzo, who works with Le.
