Tennessee state troopers used a speaker attached to a drone to play the Rocky theme song, Sebastian’s favorite song, hoping it would entice him to come out if he was hiding.

The state Bureau of Investigation posted an endangered child alert for the teen on the day he disappeared, and officials have since deployed drones, dogs, boats, horses and helicopters in the search for him.

“They told us their favorite song was ‘Eye of The Tiger,'” said Chief Deputy Eric Craddock of the Sumner County Sheriff’s Department.

‘We try to play that to call him and let him know we’re here for him. I’m sure you could see what’s going on here and feel intimidated.

‘But if you see this news, I want you to know: Sebastián, come out, we are here to help you. We just want to get you home safe and sound.

“We have no clues or details that indicate Sebastian is not alive,” Craddock added in an update on Monday.

He said officials were now “reducing” the ground search as they “moved to the investigative side.”

“We’ve consulted with search and rescue experts and they’ve told us, ‘You’ve done everything you can do.'”
