Allegedly, his fatal disappearance wasn’t the first time he’d gone missing.

He has found it difficult to cope with his bipolar disorder and has had a history of disappearing but has always been found, the late singer’s manager Brian Buchanan told TMZ.

“Luke fought as hard as he could, but the disease got the better of him,” Buchanan said. “When he beat the disease, he was the sweetest and most generous guy. He has now found peace and some comfort.”

Kinman told police that Bell recently had a change in his medication that “may have played a role” in his disappearance, but didn’t elaborate.
