Family members announced a reward Wednesday for information in the disappearance of a recent pharmacy school graduate.

According to Loganville Police, Alvin Rowson Ahmed was last seen on Monday night around 9:30 leaving work at the Publix grocery store on Atlanta Highway in Loganville.  Surveillance video shows him leave the store with groceries.  Those groceries, along with Ahmed's car were found abandoned in the Publix parking lot Tuesday. 

"I just want to find my little brother and he's been gone for two days," said Kalvin Ahmed.  "It's just hard to imagine that someone that you love is just all of sudden gone without any trace."

Family members went to the Publix to distribute fliers Wednesday afternoon and talked to regular customers about Ahmed's disappearance.  They have collected $5,000 to offer as a reward for information in the case. 

"Alvin's an innocent kid.  He's just started his life and there's no reason why any of this should've happened to him and I wish we knew something," said Kalvin Ahmed.  "Anything can help at this point." 

Kalvin Ahmed said his brother had just graduated from pharmacy school and was set to begin working as a full-time pharmacist at the Publix next month.  He said his brother had no reason to disappear on his own. 

Ahmed is described as being 5-feet-6-inches tall and 140 pounds. He has brown eyes.  Officials say that he was wearing a green polo shirt with a Publix logo and black slacks.

Anyone with information about Ahmed's disappearance should call the Walton County Communications Center at 770-267-6556.
