Drake Bell joked that he was labeled missing for a short time. On Thursday, after the scare when authorities in Florida asked the general public for assistance in locating Drake Bell, the actor attempted to find humor in the situation.
Following the announcement made by the Daytona Beach Police Department on Thursday that he had been found and was in no danger, the former Nickelodeon star took to Twitter.
In a tweet accompanied by a laughing emoticon, he said, “You leave your phone in the car and don’t answer for the night, and this?”
An earlier post on the police department’s Facebook page read, “Officers are seeking Jared Bell, DOB 06/27/1986.” The post was published earlier in the day.
The post states, “He should be traveling in a 2022 grey BMW, and his last known location is probably the region of Mainland High School on 4/12/2023,” It further states that “He should be traveling in a 2022 grey BMW.” “There is a concern for his well-being as he has not been seen in some time.”
Jared Drake Bell is the actor’s given name in the law.
Some hours later, an update to the article included the information that law enforcement had contacted Bell and that he was “safe.”
The first report of a missing person was the only information available, and no other information was available.
