Gray has been missing for more than a week, and was last seen leaving a Waukegan bar on March 18.

One-hundred US Navy personnel helped in Friday's search, which ended after an extensive effort and no sign of the missing Navy sailor.

Police said they are hoping for help from anyone who may have seen Gray after the last video of him in the alley.
