Orlando Brown Found

Yesterday, friends and family of That’s So Raven star Orlando Brown went public after the Disney actor went missing. They apparently lost communication with him after he left his manager’s house on Tuesday. On Wednesday, the 20-year-old was found, or at least he was ready to be found again. In a statement he said: "It was wrong for me not to inform my manager … about my whereabouts, especially when I am usually so routine and big on communication, but I felt a little lost and needed to get away." Apparently the aspiring musician was a bit upset that he lost a gig and said "it got a bit overwhelming and I needed to be alone," he continued in the statement. Even if it was a strange reason to "go missing," at least he’s safe.
