Texas EquuSearch has combed the area for Landry, using scent dogs that tracked the 21-year-old to a pond, according to KHOU-TV. Authorities drained the pond, but did not find Landry.

"I pray my son is alive and pray that someone is taking care of him," Landry’s father Kent told the station.

As the search for Landry continues this week, his family held a prayer vigil at Southminster Presbyterian Church in Missouri City Sunday evening.

Kent Landry, who is a pastor at the church, said he is "living the worst dream of every parent."
