Tribal, local and federal authorities searched a pond in Michigan on Wednesday as part of a case into a young member of the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians who went missing in 2007.

Augustine "Auggie" Floyd, 18, was last seen on the reservation of the Saginaw Chippewa Tribe and at another home on October 12, 2007. But the new search failed to turn up any evidence, MLive reported.

"Nothing was found," Frank Cloutier, the public relations director for the Saginaw Chippewa Tribe, told MLive.

Misheka Floyd was with his cousin on the day he went missing. He said they both spent time with their grandmother before going their separate ways.

"My grandma, she’s not in the best health anymore. I want her to have that closure before she passes. I don’t want her to die not knowing what happened," Misheka, who considers himself to be Auggie's older brother, told Up North Live.
