It has been two weeks since 22-year-old Heather Hodges vanished from Franklin County, VA and officials are asking the public to help in the search for her. Tips are needed because it appears that detectives are stumped on this strange case. Would it be at all possible that this case is related to the disappearance of 23-year-old Kelli Bordeaux of the Fort Bragg area? These two disappearances occurred within just days of one another with a difference of just three hours between them. Perhaps that is why criminal profilers want detectives to expand their search area for Bordeaux!
As for the disappearance of Heather Hodges, the petite blonde woman was last seen by her 39-year-old boyfriend around the 9th of April. He claims to have only seen her for a few minutes before leaving. When he returned, she was gone. There aren't many reports of this case in the media headlines, which is upsetting because this is either a cut-and-dry case of foul play caused by a loved one, or a predator is in the area. Both scenarios wouldn't be surprising in the least.
