In the early morning of Sunday, December 18, 2022, 24-year-old Angel Fulgado was in the Contra Costa County city of Lafayette leaving home for work. He left his residence at 3:00 a.m., and was seen at the Safeway around 4:00. Since that early morning, Fulgado has not been seen or heard from since.

Fulgado’s father, Ignacio Chico, told us the last reported location of his son was near Ukiah before his phone was shut off.

Yesterday, December 19, Fulgaldo’s wife and father drove north to Ukiah in search of their loved one. They drove back to the Bay Area with no clear answers about their loved one’s whereabouts.

Fulgado has no known friends in the Ukiah area and has never left town unannounced.

The 24-year-old man is known to be driving a blue/gray 2017 four-door Toyota Corolla. The vehicle is noticeable due to the driver’s side mirror having adhesive tape on it.

Fulgado was last seen wearing a black puffer jacket, pants, and Nike Vapors. His eyes and hair are brown; he stands at 5’4” weighing 160 pounds. He has two tattoos, one on his shoulder and on his chest. 

Chico told us multiple law enforcement agencies have been contacted in the wake of his son going missing including the Ukiah Police Department and the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office. We have requested comment from both and will update this article when more information is available.

Until then, if you have information about Fulgado’s whereabouts or well-being, the family is asking you to call (510) 682-4283.


UPDATE 12/20/2022: Ukiah Police Department’s Lieutenant Tom Corning told us a family member of Angel Fulgado contacted his agency. As a result, UPD officers have been notified of the situation and provided a photograph of him “in case they run across him during their shifts.”

Michelle Salgado, Angel’s wife, reached out to us to clarify information. Regarding her husband’s last known movements, he left his Berkeley home at 3:00 am Sunday, December 18, 2022. There are reports that in the following hours he was seen at a Safeway grocery store in Lafayette and Alamo, both cities in the East Bay.

She offered a distinguishing feature of his Toyota Corolla: the driver’s side rearview mirror has clear tape on it. Also, she said his tattoos were actually a single piece running from his right shoulder to his chest depicting a two koi fish.


UPDATE 12/22/2022: We have a devastating update regarding efforts to locate the missing Bay Area man:

  1. That night around 2 am on Mountain View rd a
    Vehicle was un occupied when they show up they went off the bridge but they couldn’t find nobody might want to try Ukiah again and ask about vehicle details I’m so sorry for this family

  2. To his wife Michelle,
    I am so sorry to hear of this senseless and shocking incident. I know your prob in shock now, but the stages of grief will come, and I just wanted to share with you, that the pain of losing your partner as father to your children, although so painful now, will not like it does now forever. I know it feels that way, or at least it did for me, but as the days go on, your child will bring you so much joy, and you’ll learn how to use this tragedy to make yourself a stronger person. If I could offer one piece of advice I wish I would’ve been told and followed through with, it would be to talk to a therapist, counselor ,or psychologist, Even if you think you can manage without, it will offer so much clarity and a safe place to get feedback on whatever your going through. Also, if you start developing signs of PTSD, they’re will be someone who has been with you from the start, just in case flashbacks or severe depression comes on. It’s always good as a single parent, sadly you are now, to have someone to back you and vouch for you lest anyone at anytime use your grief against you. You will get through this.
    Pray,pray and pray. Please take my advise seriously, as if I would’ve had it to follow back then, I would have not lost my position as a mother, along with my husband. In the bible we are told, “this too shall pass” WERE NEVER GIVEN MORE THAN WE CAN HANDLE.
    God bless you and your baby sweetheart.
    Much love from one sister to another.
