Not only did Angela reveal that Michael had gone missing, but she also shared several details about his disappearance. “Michael left everything here. I know that there’s people probably think, ‘Oh, maybe he just left.’ But like, nothing, not any ID, nothing to show his name on it, no clothing, not a toothbrush. Zero point zero zero. No wallet, nothing. Clothes on his back is what he left with on Friday,” she explained, adding that he “only had like $40 on him.”

“If he left on his own, he should have called me. Everybody in this town, I’m gonna tell you, they say, ‘Angela, he’s f–king walked out because he’s got no reason to stay here.’ I don’t want to believe that,” she told 90 Day Fiancé blogger John Yates, adding that her husband might have family in Idaho.

Angela – who married the Nigeria native in 2020 – then wondered if Michael was using her as a way to get to America and planned to leave her as soon as he settled in her rural Georgia town. “I’m telling you now. I’m not gonna let you f–king come here if you didn’t love me,” she said.

They verified it with him,” John explained. “He did have a burner phone or another phone that nobody knew about. And on that phone he had pictures of his passport that he left. They verified his ID.”

John continued, “He told the police that he was in fear of his life and Michael didn’t want Angela knowing his location.”
