The family of 24-year-old Alvin Justine Bulaoro of Fallbrook has reported him as missing. Bulaoro was last seen leaving the family residence in the 700 block of Driftwood Lane during the evening hours of Friday, December 21.
A friend of the family said Bulaoro told his parents he was going to San Diego to see some friends, “but he hasn’t been seen or heard from since, which is very uncharacteristic.”
After no contact with the young man for 48 hours, the family filed a missing person’s report with the Fallbrook Sheriff’s substation on Sunday, December 23.
The case has been assigned to Detective Bill Yavno.
“We are actively working this missing person’s case,” said Yavno. “As an adult, he can leave if he likes, but in this case the family is extremely concerned.”
Yavno said all law enforcement agencies in surrounding counties have been notified of the case and the information will also go into the statewide and national database for missing persons.
At this time, Yavno said there is no reason to expect foul play.
“We have no indications of foul play at this time,” said Yavno. “For now, he appears to be a voluntarily missing adult. During this stressful time of year, he left and hasn’t contacted family members. We are actively working this to the best of our abilities.”
Bulaoro is described by the Sheriff’s Dept. as a Filipino male, 5-feet, 5-inches tall with a small build, with black closely-cropped hair, brown eyes, medium complexion, clean shaven,
“He was last seen wearing blue jeans and a blue shirt,” said Yavno. “He was driving a 1997 Toyota 4-Runner, brown in color, license plate #6CXM888.”
Anyone with knowledge of Bulaoro’s whereabouts is asked to contact law enforcement authorities.
“If someone knows where he is, they should call the nearest local jurisdiction and have officers respond,” said Yavno.
