    Doesn't sound good.
    I pray she is ok.
    Prayers for her loved ones too.
    Since she's allegedly been missing for over a month, surprised we haven't heard about this by now.
    We heard about Kelli Bordeaux the very next day, didn't we?

    I truly hope this isn't a Kelli Bordeaux ending... females soldiers can't even find safety in their own country.

    The military doesn't look for deserters unless there is a reason to believe foul play was involved. Her mother contacting the police is what made this a news worthy story. I hope she is found safely.

    Seriously, they don't know if she lived on the Army base on the date/time of her disappearance? Have they not asked?

    Why would she be in danger anymore now than before?? No real reason to assume she is in danger. You know what happens when you assume?

    Yeah, I agree with JAT, poor reporting on this story. Plus, how could the Army not know where... View More

    when I was in the USMC and someone didn't show up for either of the 3 formations (morning, noon, evening) it was assumed that the person just forgot. if they didn't show up within 24 hrs then they were considered AWOL. and we didn't go looking for them either.
    I wouldn't call it poor reporting on WRAL because they can only report what they've been given and in this situation it was until the mother made contact (the Army is only going to give out but so much info) with the media.

    Tell me it ain't so. Poor reporting from WRAL? Never.

    I hope she is located, preferably safely. But I hope they find her no matter what, for her family's peace of mind.

    I don't get it....a soldier has been missing since July 1, it's long into August, and Ft Bragg itself hasn't noticed this soldier is missing?!

    Way back when, when I was a company clerk, if a troop was missing at morning formation he was listed as AWOL on the DA-1 (Morning Report). After 30 days he was dropped from rolls as a deserter. The Army reported it to NCIC and that was that. We did not go looking for him.
