Former Nickelodeon star Drake Bell is missing, says the Daytona Beach Police Department in Florida. In their Facebook post regarding Bell’s disappearance, the DBPD says that the 36-year-old is “considered endangered.”
According to the Daytona Beach Police Department, Bell “should be traveling in a 2022 grey BMW and his last known location is potentially the area of Mainland High School on Wednesday, April 12, just before 9 p.m.”
In a report from Variety, Bell’s manager has yet to respond to a request for comment. Additionally, the information in the DBPD’s Facebook post is all the details that have been provided so far.
Bell is best known for his time starring in the Nickelodeon series Drake & Josh alongside Josh Peck, which ran from 2004 through 2007. In addition to his starring role in Drake & Josh, Bell also made appearances in the Nick series The Amanda Show and voiced Spider-Man/Peter Parker in the Disney animated series Ultimate Spider-Man. Bell also has embarked on a music career, releasing six studio albums.
Most recently, Bell provided the voice of Oscar in the 2020 direct-to-DVD animated comedy The Big Trip and Drake Parker in a 2021 episode of Robot Chicken.
He recently made headlines back in 2021 when he plead guilty to a felony charge of attempting to endanger children and a misdemeanor charge of disseminating matters harmful to juveniles. Police said that Drake allegedly met with a 15-year-old following month of social media messages that were “sexual in nature at times.”
As a result of the guilty plea, Bell was sentenced to two years of probation and 200 hours of community service. Bell also had legal issues back in 2015 when he was arrested for a DUI and spent four days in jail.
At this time, the Daytona Beach Police Department is asking anyone with potential information about Bell’s status and/or whereabouts to call 386-671-5207 or send an email to email@example.com
