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.

"I will categorically say a body has not been found," FBI spokeswoman Kim Mertz said at a news conference. "Items that could potentially be evidence have been seized. None have yet been associated with Annie Le at this time."

Mertz would not confirm reports that the items found included bloody clothing.

Le was last seen Tuesday at a university laboratory.

Le, originally from Placerville, Calif., was set to get married today on the north shore of Long Island, N.Y. The wedding was canceled Friday.

Police say Le's fiance, Jonathan Widawsky, a Columbia University graduate student, is not a suspect and is assisting with the investigation.
