He would have made “suicidal statements” before disappearing
TMZ reports that Drake Bell allegedly said he didn’t want to live anymore due to child custody concerns before briefly disappearing.
Her brother Robert called the Orlando Police Department and claimed he was making suicidal statements prior to his disappearance.

His brother called the police when he felt Drake was not returning his calls and texts to contact him.
Drake Bell pleaded guilty to sexual assault and attempted child endangerment in 2021
Drake Bell was arrested in Ohio on June 4, 2021 on charges of endangering children and distributing material harmful to minors. He allegedly violated his duty of care towards a 15-year-old victim with whom he had a physical relationship, during a concert in December 2017.
Cleveland police discovered he had been sending inappropriate social media messages to the minor for months before the concert. He pleaded not guilty and was released on a personal bond of $2,500 and agreed to provide a DNA sample.
He was also ordered to have no contact with the alleged victim and a trial was scheduled for June 23. At trial, the actor pleaded guilty to both counts.
On July 12, 2021, the accuser publicly accused him of sexually assaulting her when she was underage, in addition to the endangerment charges.
He was sentenced to two years probation and 200 hours of community service. Several months after the scandal, he posted on his Tiktok and claimed he had no knowledge of the girl’s age, and after learning the truth, he cut ties with her.
