The university said Monday that the school community is "deeply concerned about the disappearance of our nursing student Michelle Le."

    The school said that police have conducted interviews with family, friends and acquaintances and that they are following up on leads.
    Le told fellow students about a weekend trip to Reno, but did not show up there. Her cell phone has gone unanswered since Friday.
    Police found her Honda SUV parked a few blocks from class. As of early Monday police were still waiting for a search warrant to get inside the vehicle to look for clues.
