CLUES GATHERED IN YALE MYSTERY

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Potential evidence has been seized from the building where a Yale University graduate student was last seen before she vanished days ahead of her wedding, authorities said Saturday.

Items that could be evidence are being analyzed but none has yet been associated with Annie Le, FBI spokeswoman Kim Mertz said at a news conference.

"I will categorically say a body has not been found," Mertz said. "Items that could potentially be evidence have been seized. Nothing that can (be) associated with Annie Le at this time."

Mertz would not confirm reports that the items found included bloody clothing, and officials say there's no evidence of foul play.

Le was last seen Tuesday at a university laboratory. She swiped her identification card to enter the building Tuesday morning, but authorities have found no record of her leaving, despite some 75 surveillance cameras that cover the complex. Her purse, cell phone, credit cards and money were found in her office.

On Saturday, investigators brought what appeared to be blueprints to the building.

Yale is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to Le's whereabouts.

Le, originally from Placerville, Calif., was set to get married today. Police say fiance Jonathan Widawsky, a Columbia University graduate student, is not a suspect and is assisting with the investigation.
