The Army has declared a missing Fort Bragg soldier dead. Army Combat Medic Kelli Bordeaux was last seen in April of 2012 at a bar in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
The Army told Bordeaux's mother, who lives in Cocke County, about the change in status on Monday.
The change is a standard procedure. It does not presume that Bordeaux is dead, but transfers benefits to her family.
