(Newser) – A Yale professor has been interviewed by police over the disappearance of graduate student Annie Marie Le, New York Daily News reports. Le was due to attend the professor's class on Tuesday but it was abruptly canceled and Le was found to be missing hours later. The cancellation so close to the time Le is believed to have disappeared raised police suspicions, a law enforcement source says. It is unclear whether the professor is a suspect.

The pharmacology student was last seen Tuesday morning at her lab on the Yale campus, where her purse, phone, credit cards, and cash were found later that day. Yale has offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to her whereabouts, and family members have canceled Le's wedding to a Colombia University grad student, which was due to take place on Long Island tomorrow morning.
