A part-time security guard and a clerk at his family’s Chevron station at Union Road and Yosemite Avenue, Muhammad Rashid, 30, never returned home after a Saturday night guard assignment on Lammers Road in Tracy.

Reports indicate that Rashid called his wife at about 9 p.m. saying he would be home in 10 to 15 minutes.  He never arrived and hasn’t been heard from since.  

San Joaquin County Sheriff’s spokesman Les Garcia noted that a missing person’s report was filed by the family on Sunday.  Directives were sent to all law enforcement agencies in the region with a photograph of Rashid asking them to be on the lookout for the man.  A search warrant asking for a GPS search was requested through the Sheriff’s Office.

His father Safdar Ali said his son was last seen by the family about 3 p.m. on Saturday at his Manteca home when he left for work in Tracy where he works for Bay Valley Security.  He was assigned to a farm at 27851 Lammers Road where the employer reported seeing him leave the job site around 9 p.m. 

Manteca detective Jason Bonetti was reportedly seeking a search warrant Tuesday afternoon allowing him to track Rashid’s ATM card to see if it had been used.

Rashid worked the afternoon 2 to 10 p.m. shift weekdays and the graveyard shift Friday and Saturday at the Chevron station.
