ST. CLOUD -- The family of missing 21-year-old Jesse Dady is starting their own search efforts in the Mississippi River.

Dady's aunt, Jennifer Antell says the family has set up a donation account to help pay for independent diver, Tom Crossmon to search for Dady, Friday.

If you would like to make a donation visit any US Bank location and say you'd like to donate to the Jesse A. Dady Donation Account. Meanwhile, the Stearns County Sheriff's Office has been sending several dive teams into the river throughout the week to search for Dady.

Authorities say surveillance video shows Dady walking out onto the railroad bridge early Saturday morning, which has led them to believe he might have fallen into the river.

Dady went missing early Saturday morning in downtown St. Cloud.
