New footage is shedding light on the last known whereabouts of 29-year-old Jordan Taylor, a CUNY law student who disappeared earlier this month.

Surveillance footage obtained by WNBC shows Taylor walking past the Goldman Sachs building in Lower Manhattan around 2:30 a.m. on January 7. The Nyack native was last seen leaving a barbershop in Queens on January 6 and hanging out at a Port Authority Bus Terminal for hours.

"Just happy and felt a little relief that he was still there walking around. So I took that as positive news," Alton Taylor, Jordan's brother, told reporters.

Taylor's wallet was found near the Goldman Sachs building later that morning on January 7 with his money and credit cards still inside. His cell phone was reportedly recovered from the Hell's Kitchen area of Manhattan.

Family members and friends haven't seen or heard from Taylor since he abruptly left his haircut appointment. Relatives initially believed he may have gone to a nightclub in Hell's Kitchen, but police didn't find any evidence he went there on January 6 or 7. Taylor's also expressed concern about his mental health while he was waiting for the results of his final exams.

Taylor previously worked on the campaigns of current Lt. Gov. Anthony Delgado and Baltimore City Council President Nick Mosby.

NYPD's Missing Persons Unit is leading the case, but Alton remains hopeful his brother will be found.

"I know I’m gonna find him. He’ll be safe and sound and when the family is whole again, we can go back to a sense of normalcy," Alton said. "I don't want to rule out a heinous foul play. Like, I don't want to think about it, but I can't rule it out either."
