FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. - It has been two years since Fort-Bragg-based Army medic Kelli Bordeaux was last seen. Her family holds out hope they will find out what happened to her and be reunited one day.

Bordeaux who was 23 years old at the time left the Froggy Bottoms bar on Ramsey Street in Fayetteville around 1:20 a.m. on Saturday, April 14, 2012. The last person to report seeing her was Nicholas Holbert who said he gave her a ride home.

Bordeaux’ sister Olivia Cox who lives in Florida said there have not been many tips in the case recently.

“They have slowed down, which is very concerning that there is still now answers for me and my family on where Kelli is,” Cox said.

In recent weeks a new billboard about Bordeaux went up in Fayetteville. It’s on Bragg Boulevard near Skibo Road.

Cox said her mother is in contact with the Fayetteville Police Department every week.

“[She’s] asking what they're doing now, what they're doing next and where we're going to go from here,” Cox said. “Even if tips aren't still coming in there's still leads to be followed. We try to make sure that they continue to do all that they can to bring Kelli home for us.”

Cox also said the family tries not to treat the anniversary date of Bordeaux’s disappearance any differently than other days. She said the family considers it another day with Bordeaux – not necessarily a day to mark in a special way.

“[I want people to know] that we miss my sister more than anything in the world, and there’s nothing that we wouldn’t do to bring her back home,” Cox said. “Please keep looking and posting about her and pray for her and my family that she comes home soon.”

Anyone who can help Fayetteville police find Bordeaux is asked to call 910-433-1389.
