M550 1TB not accessible after sanitize process.

I have used a M550 1TB SSD for a while and it has worked great with zero problems. I decided to upgrade to a different drive and sold the 1TB drive to a friend. Prior to sending the drive, I used Micron Storage Executive to do a PSID revert first, followed by a drive sanitize. The sanitization process seemed to work fine...it said processing for a good while but the process appeared to complete.

 

Now the drive is unaccessible. MSE nor Windows 10 see the drive.

 

Did I brick the drive? Is there anything I can do?

 

[EDIT] I just tried the power cycle method recommended by Crucial. The drive shows up in the BIOS, but is not visible in Windows or Micron Storage Executive.
