Fort Bragg to hold remembrance ceremony for missing soldier

It has been a year since Spc. Kelli Bordeaux went missing from Fort Bragg, N.C. She was last seen leaving Froggy Bottoms in Fayetteville with a registered sex offender.

The 601st Area Support Medical Company will hold a remembrance ceremony for members of Bordeaux’s unit and family April 19 at Pope Field on post.

“We’re doing this for members of the battalion to bring hope to the soldiers and to make it known that Spc. Kelli Marie Bordeaux lives in our hearts,” 1st Lt. Annie Davis, of the 261st Multifunctional Medical Battalion, said. “I am Bordeaux’s platoon leader so it’s important that we take time to remember her.”

The unit’s public affairs office announced the ceremony as public on Tuesday, but this morning told the Fayetteville Observer that the event would be closed.

    Love how you threw the “registered sex offender” in the posting. He worked at the location, offered her a ride, was interviewed and has since been excluded as a suspect. Maybe a little better information that tells the entire story instead of subliminally accusing someone may help you.

    This is a terribly sad thing to have happen to a daughter. My heart goes out to her parents.. and to the rest of the family as well. I have three daughters myself… same age group. I have never stopped worrying about something just like this happening. I cannot even imagine what the parents must be going through.

    I will keep you all in my prayers, I wish I could do something to help… I pray they find this man and imprison him for the rest of his life..

    I also pray that they find her alive… so she can go home to her family. It’s happened before. It can happen again.

    God Bless you…
