RALEIGH, N.C. -- Kelli Bordeaux took a break from life as a soldier at North Carolina's Fort Bragg to do what many 20-somethings do on a Friday night: Maybe have a few drinks, play pool and belt out some songs at a local karaoke night.
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Fayetteville police on Thursday released a photo of a missing Fort Bragg soldier taken the night she was last seen nearly two weeks ago.

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — The remains of a Fort Bragg soldier who disappeared more than two years ago may have been found and a suspect has been arrested in her death, police in North Carolina said Wednesday.
Detectives went Wednesday to an area near the Interstate 295 corridor on the northern side of Fayetteville after receiving information, city police spokesman Lt. Todd Joyce said. 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.
