Missing soldier's family holds out hope

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

The brother of a missing Fort Bragg solider is speaking out again about efforts to locate his sister.

Pfc. Kelli Bordeaux's family has said they support the police search, but at the same time they said the pace of the search is frustratingly slow.

"I'm still 100 percent positive I am going to find her," said Bordeaux's brother, Matt Henson. "So there is no doubt in my mind."

Henson's faith and hope remain strong, but the emotional drain is taking a toll.

"I would like to think something will happen here in the next couple of days to kinda give us a big break," said Henson.

Bordeaux, 23, was last seen leaving Ramsey Street club Froggy Bottoms more than a week ago.

Last week, two big searches turned up no trace of the missing soldier. Police investigators are now re-interviewing people who saw her at the club before she disappeared.

Through it all, Henson said the public's support has kept him and his family going.

"It's really heartwarming," said Henson. "It really is to see all the support from everybody -- stopping me and telling me to stay strong. They are praying for me. That's really been a big boost for morale."

Family members said Bordeaux's husband, Mike, is working behind the scenes.

Meanwhile, investigators are reviewing their files following up phone tips and leads to a hot line.
