Details of Disappearance Angell was employed as a long-haul truck driver for Cool-X Transport in Calgary, Alberta, Canada in 2000. He hauled meat from Canada into the United States, and produce from the U.S. into Canada. In September 2000, he took a load of bananas from Calgary to Los Angeles, California. He was supposed to return to Calgary with another load, but never arrived.
Angell stopped at Whiskey Pete's bar and casino in Primm, Nevada on September 22, 2000 while en route to deliver a shipment to Canada. Angell has never been heard from again. His truck was discovered abandoned in the establishment's parking lot shortly after he was last seen. The vehicle's cargo was intact and the refrigerator was out of fuel. Angell's wallet was located inside the truck, but there were no other signs of him at the scene.
Someone used Angell's ATM card to withdraw money nine times from September 22 to 4:00 a.m. on September 23, withdrawing his entire paycheck. A waitress at Whiskey Pete's reported serving Angell at 10:00 a.m. on September 23. He bought oatmeal and paid with pocket change. He was reportedly seen later in the parking lot. He looked sick, was clutching his stomach, seemed disoriented and asked for help.
There were possible sightings of Angell in Texas in December 2001, but these have not been confirmed. The police believe he may have left of his own accord. Angell's wife divorced him after his disappearance and has since remarried, and her second husband adopted her and Angell's son. Angell's case remains unsolved.
