Remains thought to be missing soldier found in NC

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Police in North Carolina say the remains of a Fort Bragg soldier who disappeared more than two years ago may have been found and that a suspect has been arrested in her death.

Fayetteville police spokesman Lt. Todd Joyce says detectives used information they received and went Wednesday to an area near the Interstate 295 corridor on the northern side of the city. The search turned up remains believed to be those of Pfc. Kelli Bordeaux.

Authorities said Bordeaux left her apartment on April 13, 2012, and headed to a nearby bar.

The remains will be sent to the chief medical examiner's office to confirm the identity.

Joyce said 27-year-old Nicholas Michael Holbert has been arrested and will be charged with first-degree murder and may face additional charges.
