WAUKEGAN, Ill. (WTVO) — Police are searching for a missing Navy sailor who hasn’t been seen since Saturday.
Seamus Gray, 21, was last seen leaving the Ibiza Bar on Genessee Street on Saturday morning, wearing a red shirt or jacket and red pants.
Waukegan Police said they have surveillance video of Gray at the intersection of Sheridan Road and Washington just before 2 a.m. on March 18th.
Gray, who is assigned to the Naval Station Great Lakes, did not report for duty this week.
According to WLS, Gray and several others were kicked out of the bar for being too intoxicated, and at one point in surveillance footage of the scene, was seen laying on the ground.
“Overnight we received some more video from around here at the lakefront, from businesses at the marinas that were showing Seamus right on the water’s edge. And so we focused our efforts on searching the water again today,” Deputy Chief Brian Mullen said.
Waukegan Police have been searching the lakefront area where Gray was last seen.
Naval Station Great Lakes released a statement saying: “The Navy is aware that the Waukegan Police Department is conducting an investigation in an attempt to locate Fireman Recruit Seamus Gray, an active-duty service member assigned to Surface Warfare Engineering School Command Great Lakes. He was reported missing on March 21, 2023. The Great Lakes Naval Criminal Investigative Service office is assisting with the investigation.. Please direct all additional questions to the Waukegan Police Department. The Navy will continue to work with all law enforcement agencies involved in the case. Our thoughts are with Fireman Recruit Gray’s family during this difficult time.”
