Became national news when police said Bell  was considered missing 

and in danger after being last spotted in the area of Mainland High School Wednesday just before 9 p.m. 

Just before 1 p.m., Daytona Beach police said Bell was in contact with law enforcement and was safe. 

Bell tweeted: "You leave your phone in the car and don’t answer for the night and this?" 

He added a laughing emoji, seemingly implying the entire ordeal was simply a mistake.

“I don’t know why he was here, but I hope he’s OK,” Jeremy Perez, who works in Daytona Beach, said.
