Actor Safe and Sound After Mysterious Disappearance
Actor and musician Drake Bell, known for his role in the hit Nickelodeon show “Drake & Josh,” has been found after being reported missing in Florida. The Daytona Beach Police Department had issued a missing person alert on Facebook earlier in the day, stating that Bell was “considered missing and endangered.”
Bell addressed his disappearance on Twitter, writing on April 13 with a laughing emoji, “You leave your phone in the car and don’t answer for the night and this?” However, he provided no further comment or details regarding the incident.
The 36-year-old actor had last been seen on April 12 around 9 p.m. in the area of Mainland High School, potentially traveling in a 2022 grey BMW. The Daytona Beach Police Department’s Facebook post included a picture of Bell and a plea for information from the public.

It’s not the first time Bell has made headlines for less-than-ideal reasons. In July 2021, he was arrested and charged with attempted child endangerment, to which he later pleaded guilty. He was sentenced to two years probation.
As news of his disappearance spread, fans of the actor and musician expressed concern on social media. However, given Bell’s past behavior, not all reactions were sympathetic.
While the circumstances of his disappearance remain unclear, the important thing is that Bell has been found and is safe. Fans and detractors can continue to follow his career and personal life, hopefully without further drama or controversy.
