Why was Angel in "The Wish"?

We know from previous episodes that Angel was told by Whistler to look after Buffy. He found her in L.A and followed her when she moved to Sunnydale. So why would he be captured by The Master in Sunnydale? Cordelia wished for Buffy to never have moved to Sunnydale and it happened. But why was Angel there? Wouldn't he have been in Cleveland where Buffy was? He wasn't just randomly in Sunnydale, he moved there because of Buffy. If Buffy wasn't in Sunnydale, Angel would have no reason to be there.

Maybe he went there, thinking she'd be there, realized she wasn't and was captured before he could leave? He may have waited around, to see if she'd show. Or he didn't know where she'd gone instead?

(Or the writers really wanted us to see Vampire Willow treating him like her toy :D )

Angel didn't follow Buffy around the entire time she was a Slayer in LA. The comics (the ones considered canon) show Angel going ahead to Sunnydale to prepare for her arrival, just as Giles was in town before Buffy was. That's why, in the episode (The Wish) he says he waited for her but she never came.
