Police at Yale University have issued a missing person’s report on 24-year-old Pharmacology student Annie Le. Le, according to police, left her purse, money and credit cards, her cell phone and all of her identification behind before vanishing earlier this week.

Le was last seen wearing “a knee length brown skirt, bright green short sleeved T-shirt, brown shoes and a brown necklace” the New Haven Register reports. She was last seen outside Yale’s School of Medicine on 10 Amistad St., this past Tuesday.

Le has no medical conditions that could explain her absence, and apparently has no access to a vehicle. She is 4-foot-11 inches tall and of Asian descent with brown eyes and straight shoulder-length brown hair, weighing about 90 pounds.

CNN reports Le was scheduled to be married Sunday to Columbia University grad student Jonathan Widawsky. Widawsky has not heard from his fiancƒ©e. Le’s family is assisting Yale, Connecticut and New Haven police, as well as the FBI, with the case.

Anyone with any information is urged to contact the Yale Police Department at 203-432-4400.

    This is not the only student to go missing under these circumstances. They usually disappear in the fall and spring after midterms or finals.

    Remember Brian Shaffer, Maura Murray, Michael Negrete, Josh Guimond, or Justin Gains? Ron Tammen is the oldest case of record. He walked away from Miami of Ohio in 1953. Spotted three hours later he was so confused he didn’t know his name. Unaware he was missing he there was no effort to stop him. No one has seen him since.

    It is called Dissociative Fugue and the first cases were recorded in 1880’s France. All the victims were indoor workers.

    Experts blame stress but VisionAndPsychosis.Net, a psychology project on the Internet points to Subliminal Distraction exposure. SD is known to cause a believed to be harmless episode of confusion. The cubicle was designed to deal with the vision startle reflex to prevent it after 1968.

    No school in the United States provides Cubicle Level Protection or warns students.
