A Fort Bliss soldier reported missing on Friday had been planning to divorce her husband, says her sister. Two days before she disappeared, Jeneesa Lewis texted her sister "Yeah, he's gone. Had police go with me yesterday, it's all clear." The husband, Clinton Lewis, is also missing and believed to have taken off with Jeneesa, AP reports.

Police found the air defense artillery soldier's apartment messy and covered in blood. "The only thing I know ... is my sister is neat as a pin, nothing is ever out of place," said her sister. Lewis is the fourth female member of the armed services to go missing in recent months; the other three were later found dead. (More Texas stories.)
