Jelani Day's family reported the 25-year-old missing Aug. 25.

Police say Day was last seen on Aug. 24 at a dispensary. Images were captured on security cameras.
Police say Day isn't wearing the clothes seen in that footage; they were found in his abandoned vehicle. Day's Chrysler 300 was discovered in a wooded area in Illinois on Aug. 26.
And so far, details surrounding his disappearance are limited.
Day graduated from Alabama A&M where he pledged Omega Psi Phi fraternity.
He's now enrolled at Illinois State University.
