New search launched for missing Fort Bragg soldier


FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) -- Volunteers are mounting another search for a Fort Bragg soldier missing for two months.

Teams are meeting in Fayetteville on Saturday to search for Pfc. Kelli Bordeaux. The 23-year-old was last seen April 14 at a bar where she had gone the night before to sing karaoke.

Police believe Bordeaux left the bar with a registered sex offender whom she met there the week before. The man says he dropped her off at the apartment complex where she lived with her husband, who was away visiting family.

The man said he had nothing to do with Bordeaux's disappearance.

Volunteers have met regularly to scour various areas. Police have set up a special hotline for tips, and an $8,000 reward is being offered for information leading to Bordeaux's return.
