Family Searches for Son, a Missing U of I Student

Relatives and friends have been looking for two weeks for a missing University of Illinois student but so far have no leads.

Police in Urbana say Nizam Ahmed was last seen May 17 packing up his car at the mosque in Urbana where he lived. He was supposed to arrive in Indianapolis to visit relatives later that day.

Urbana police Detective Matt Quinley says investigators have no reason to believe foul play was involved. He says they've received no tips about the 23-year-old Danville native.

Relatives say he left his cell phone behind and there's been no activity on bank accounts.

Ahmed's father, Syed Ahmed, says hundreds of people are praying for his son.
