$25,000 reward offered for info on missing Fort Bragg soldier
Posted March 22, 2013
Fayetteville, N.C. — Fort Bragg and Fayetteville officials announced Friday that a $25,000 reward is being offered for information about a 23-year-old missing soldier who hasn't been seen since last April.
Pfc. Kelli Bordeaux disappeared after leaving Froggy Bottoms, a Ramsey Street bar, around 1:20 a.m. April 14. Fort Bragg officials reported her missing when she didn't show up for work on April 16.
Investigators have not named any suspects in her disappearance but have said they believe she left the bar with Nicholas Holbert, a 25-year-old convicted sex offender, whom she met there a week earlier.
Holbert, who lived in a lean-to behind the bar, claims that he dropped her off at the entrance to the apartment complex where she lived with her husband, who was in Florida visiting family that weekend.
Holbert says he had nothing to do with the disappearance. He was later arrested for failure to register as a sex offender.
Bordeaux was last seen wearing a pink tube top, black shorts and a pair of flip-flops that investigators have described as "bedazzled." She is 5 feet, 1 inch tall, 105 pounds and has blonde hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information should call 910-396-8777 or 910-396-0392.
