Drake Bell missing in Daytona
Yes, it’s at least a bit suspicious when you first see it. Drake Bell in Daytona? Missing? But yes, it’s in fact true — and evidently very serious.
The DBPD later posted that this was, in fact, a real post.
“For those asking, this is a legitimate post from the Daytona Beach Police Department. If you have any information, please contact Detective Jayson Wallace,” they said.
Bell, 36, was an absolute star in the mid-2000s for his role in Drake and Josh, but has faced several issues since the show ended.
He just completed his probation over an attempted child endangerment case, in which he pled guilty. He allegedly engaged in inappropriate conduct in a club where he was scheduled to perform with a girl under 18, with whom he allegedly had an online relationship.
He’s faced other accusations over the years, including a 2015 DUI arrest and alleged abuse by a woman who had a 5-year relationship with the actor.
Bell also filed for bankruptcy in 2014.
