On Wednesday, the publication said a Delray Beach police report showed Margera was deemed missing after he told the manager in question he wasn’t pleased with the facility’s services. The same manager is also said to have been told by Margera that he would subsequently be checking himself into another rehab.
Notably, Margera has remained active on Instagram, most recently sharing the below photo.
Margera was reportedly at the Florida facility under a court order, causing staff members to question whether he was authorized to make this change. Employees clarified, however, that Margera was not exhibiting signs of being a “danger to himself or others,” per TMZ.
As previously noted, Bam Margera commemorated the completion of a 12-month treatment program for substance abuse in Florida last month. At the time, it was reported that Margera would next be utilizing outpatient treatment for a period of several months.
As for the current status of the “missing” claim, TMZ said Wednesday that local police did initially search for Margera, albeit unsuccessfully. In the same post, it’s claimed he “was currently staying” at a sober-living facility. Among the reported issues Margera is said to have had with this specific facility were frustrations over the arrangement of physical therapy following a recent skating injury.
This week, Margera marked what would have been his late friend and Jackass collaborator Ryan Dunn’s 45th birthday with a trio of throwback photos on IG.
“A best friend is hard to find, difficult to leave and impossible to forget,” he wrote in the caption.
