FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -

The mystery surrounding a missing Fort Bragg soldier continues a year after she disappeared.  Kelli Bordeaux, 23, was last seen leaving Froggy Bottoms bar in Fayetteville in the early morning hours of April 14, 2012.

Police believe Bordeaux left with a registered sex offender by the name of Nicholas Holbert, but beyond that, authorities have not made any connections to her disappearance.

The Fayetteville Observer reports police have learned of two text messages sent from Bordeaux's cell phone after leaving the bar.  One of them said she had arrived home.  Investigators doubt Bordeaux was the one who actually sent that message.

Teams of searchers have combed through nearby woods over the last year looking for any possible clues.  They haven't found much, but a local woman named Tina Turner, who has helped lead search efforts, told WNCN Sunday that she is not giving up hope that Bordeaux will eventually turn up.  Turner says hardly a day goes by that people are not talking about the case.

"I don't know many people that don't drive around Fayetteville just looking, wondering is she here?  Was she there?  Somebody there might know something," Turner said.  "It's something that never leaves your thoughts."

Police have announced a $25,000 reward is available for information that could help investigators.  Bordeaux is 5'1" and weighs 105 pounds.  She has blond hair, brown eyes and a small build.  Any person with information regarding this incident should contact Martin Smith at (910) 396-8777 or the Military Police Desk at (910) 396-0392.
