The first sentence is better grammatically.

Of course, the first one is fine. I don't encourage you to consider the second sentence.

The inclusion of the word "even" is incorrect.

"I will find you wherever you are; in the sky or under the ground." That isn't a particularly good sentence but it IS understandable as an English sentence.

English nouns always take articles - i.e. 'a', 'the' etc. It's not English to say "In sky.." or "in ground".
