A Fallbrook man that has been missing since Dec. 21, was found dead wrapped in a sleeping bag in the back of his truck on Thursday evening.
Alvin Bulaoro's family called authorities when a private investigator they hired located his truck in the parking lot of the Albertson's in the 1100 block of South Mission Road in Fallbrook, according to San Diego County sheriffs Lt. Glenn Giannantonio.
When deputies checked the vehicle, they found Alvin deceased in the truck. His body was in a sleeping bag and had signs of trauma, reports CBS 8 News. Further investigation found that the vehicle had been there since New Year's night.
Alvin Justine Bulaoro, 24, of Fallbrook, Calif. in San Diego County was last seen leaving the family residence in the 700 block of Driftwood Lane on Friday, December 21. Alvin was heading south to San Diego to see some friends. No one heard from him, and the family contacted the police to report him missing.
Alvin was to get his officer commendation from the army reserves on January 12.
A cause and manner of death will be determined by the Medical Examiner's Office.
