Vigil to be held tonight for missing nursing student
HAYWARD, Calif. (KGO) -- A rally is being held on Wednesday in support of missing nursing student Michelle Le as her family hangs on to hope that she will come home.
Le disappeared two months ago. She was last seen at the Kaiser Permanente hospital in Hayward.
Le's family and friends were not about to let the two-month anniversary of her disappearance pass, hence the gathering and march at Mount Eden Park in Hayward. It was in Hayward that anyone last saw Le alive after she finished a nursing class at the Kaiser hospital. Le later went to her car in the parking lot, where from there her disappearance has been a mystery.
Police found her car only a few blocks from the hospital, and evidence in the car led them to classify the case as a homicide. Despite that, Le's family has never given up hope.
Her brother, Michael Le, told ABC7 their family can think of nothing else but his sister coming home alive.
"She's my sister," Le said. "The bottom line is, she's not home yet, and we just have to do everything we can to bring her home."
As part of their continuing efforts, the family has organized searches in the Niles Canyon area. Police say phone records indicate that the canyon was the last place where Le's cell phone was used.
Investigators have called her cell phone as well, but it turned up no luck.
The family has offered a $100,000 reward for information leading to the discovery of Le.
At Wednesday's rally, the family will speak along with the Hayward Police Department. Also in attendance is Mark Klass, the father of Polly Klaas.
The family says they just want some resolution and some peace.
