It's now been nearly two years since Fort Bragg Army medic Pvt. Kelli Bordeaux went missing after leaving a bar in North Carolina.
Last year the Army changed Bordeaux's status from missing to "deceased" so that her family would be eligible for survivor benefits. The Army said the change in status "does not presume Bordeaux is actually deceased."
Bordeaux, 24, was last seen April 12, 2012, when she left Fayetteville's Froggy Bottoms bar following closing hours.
On the night in question, Bordeaux, who was based at Fort Bragg, accepted a ride with bar-employee, Nicholas Holbert; that is the last time she was seen or heard from.
Holbert, who was a part-time employee at the bar was a “person of interest” in the case, although, he was never charged in connection with her disappearance.
Several locally organized searches since her disappearance failed to produce any clues.
North Carolina's Army Criminal Investigation unit is still looking for tips and leads. Anyone with information should call CID at 910-396-8777 or Fayetteville Police at 910-433-1847.
Find Kelli Bordeaux's Facebook page is active and indicates there is still a $25,000 reward in place.
Bordeaux, assigned to the 601st Area Support Medical Company, 261st Multifunctional Medical Battalion, 44th Medical Brigade, served as a combat medic and was married to, but separated from, Michael Bordeaux. He lived in Florida at the time of her disappearance and was not a suspect in the case.
