Search for Missing Fort Bragg Soldier Follows Phone Pings
(FAYETTEVILLE, N.C.) -- The search for missing Fort Bragg soldier Kelli Bordeaux will concentrate Wednesday on an area where her phone was last detected, officials said.
The last ping from Bordeaux's cell phone came late Friday or early Saturday off a tower off the Ramsey Street corridor, the area police plan to scour for clues, Fayetteville Police Chief Tom Bergamine said.
The area is near a bar called Froggy Bottoms. Bordeaux, 23, was last seen leaving the bar in Fayetteville, N.C., around 1:20 a.m Saturday. The private first class, who is stationed at nearby Fort Bragg, was reported missing on Monday by base officials, police said.
Bordeaux's family said she took her job seriously and would never miss work.
Fayetteville Police spokesperson Gavin MacRoberts said there is reason to believe the soldier is in danger.
"There is some information we've gathered that makes us concerned for her safety," he said, but declined to go into more detail due to the ongoing investigation.
The missing soldier, who is from St. Cloud, Fla., has been married to her husband, Mike Bordeaux, who is a civilian, for nearly two years. He was in Florida at the time of his wife's disappearance visiting his father, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
Bordeaux joined the military in April of last year, according to a Fort Bragg spokesperson. She was assigned to the 601st Area Support Medical Company, 261st Multifunctional Medical Battalion, 44th Medical Brigade, as a health service specialist. She joined the unit last November.
Bordeaux is 5-foot-1 and weighs 102 pounds. She was last seen wearing a pink tube top with spaghetti straps and black shorts. Anyone with information is asked to contact Fayetteville Police.
