HAYWARD, Calif. (AP) -- Police in California say an arrest has been made in connection with the disappearance of a 26-year-old nursing student who was last seen in Hayward more than three months ago.

Lt. Roger Keener said Wednesday that police will provide more details about the arrest during an afternoon news conference at Hayward police headquarters.

Police say Michelle Le was last seen May 27 leaving Kaiser Hospital during a break from a clinical rotation.

Authorities classified the case as a homicide based on forensic evidence from Le's car, surveillance footage outside the hospital, cell phone records and evidence collected during search warrants.

However, family members who have conducted numerous searches for Le have held hope she will be found alive.
