Raven' Star Orlando Brown Re-Rmerges After Going Missing

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Orlando Brown, a star of Disney Channel's "That's So Raven," has been found a day after his publicist reported him missing.

The 20-year-old actor and aspiring musician disappeared Tuesday morning without word. He re-emerged Wednesday and issued a lengthy statement.

"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," Brown said in a statement released Wednesday by his publicist, Elayne Rivers.

Brown went on to say he was upset at "how we as entertainers are so disrespected at times" after an incident at a nightclub where he had expected to open for the headlining act.

"I felt that that was my chance to prove that I was talented and I was really excited," Brown said. "When I was told that I couldn't perform... that really hurt. ... It got a bit overwhelming and I needed to be alone."

He apologized to his friends and fans and thanked them for their support, wrapping the page-long statement with "I have no further comments."
