FAYETTEVILLE, NC (CNN) –  While police searched the area near a North Carolina pond today for a missing Fort Bragg soldier, investigators release a new picture of her.

Private First Class Kelli Bordeaux disappeared early Saturday.

Officials at Fort Bragg reported Bordeaux missing Monday after she didn’t show up for duty.

The 23-year-old was last seen at a Fayetteville bar.

According to police, a man named Nicholas Holbert came forward to speak with them Wednesday.  The search, meanwhile, turned up nothing.

“Today we concluded our search of the pond area off of Dobbin Holmes Road, unfortunately at this time, with that search being concluded, we have developed no new leads as a result of the search,” said Fayetteville Police Chief Tom Bergamine.

An Army official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told CNN that a bar employee gave Bordeaux a ride home and that a text came from her phone saying “got home safely.”
