Sister: 'Out of character' for Bragg soldier to go missing

Fayetteville police said Tuesday they are searching for a missing Fort Bragg soldier who was last seen leaving a bar early Saturday.

Fort Bragg officials reported Pfc. Kelli Bordeaux, 23, missing on Monday after she didn't show up for duty.

"During the early course of the investigation, there was some information that detectives received that leads us to believe she may be in danger," said police spokesman Gavin MacRoberts.

Her family members traveled from Florida Tuesday to assist investigators in the search.

Bordeaux's older sister, Olivia Cox, said it was out of character for her sister not to show up for work.

"Kelli is a good soldier. Kelli is not a soldier who would go AWOL," Cox said.

Cox declined to comment on whether Bordeaux was with her husband, Mike, the night she was last seen, but did say he was "holding up the best he can."

Bordeaux was last seen leaving Froggy Bottoms bar, at 6326 Ramsey St., around 1:20 a.m. Saturday. She was wearing a pink tank top with spaghetti straps and black shorts. Investigators have not released any information about who she was with that night.

She is 5 feet 1 inch tall, weighs about 102 pounds and has blond hair and brown eyes.

Anyone who might have seen her or has information on her whereabouts should call police at 910-587-3254 or Crime Stoppers at 910-483-TIPS (8477).

Bordeaux is a combat medic with the 44th Medical Brigade.

She joined the military in April 2011 and arrived at Fort Bragg in November.

Cox said she just wants her sister to be found.

"I have a 3-year-old son and Kelli hung the moon to him. I don't want to have to explain this to him," she said. "I just want her to come home."

Kelli hung the moon to him? I don't even know what that means...

But the situation: how distressing for her whole community!
