Hayward police have called an afternoon news conference to announce an arrest in the slaying of nursing student Michelle Le.

Le, 26, was enrolled at Samuel Merritt University in San Mateo and working at the Kaiser Permanente Hayward Medical Center when she vanished during a break in May.

The San Francisco Chronicle and KGO-TV reported that detectives would release more details at the news conference.

Le, who grew up in San Diego, told a colleague she was going to her car, which was parked in the hospital lot. She never returned, and police found her car parked a few blocks away.
