Sinead O’Connor Found Safe After Being Reported Missing

UPDATED: Sinead O’Connor was found safe in a Chicago suburb after a police search on Monday.

The Wilmette, Ill., Police Department issued an updated statement on Monday, saying, “Sinead O’Connor has been located. She is safe and is no longer listed as a missing/endangered person.”

Police had previously issued a “check for well-being” after O’Connor had been missing for more than a day after not returning from a bike ride on Sunday morning.

“The Wilmette Police is seeking to check the well-being of Sinead O’Connor,” the department said in a statement obtained by Variety at the time. “O’Connor reportedly left the Wilmette area for a bicycle ride yesterday at 6 a.m. and has not returned. A caller expressed concern for her well-being and no other information is available at this time.”

O’Conoor posted a Facebook message to her family on Sunday around 9 a.m.

“Jake, kindly go to the court on Tuesday and take custody of your brother from Tusla,” she wrote. “My lawyer will be making the illegal way yourself and Donal got him into Tusla (lying to the cops etc) known to the judge. Expect to be in trouble. In fact you’d best bring a lawyer of your own. And do not abandon your brother or any other of my babies again. What you have done to your brother and your mother is LITERALLY criminal.”

O’Connor received medical treatment in November after threatening suicide in a Facebook post, which claimed she took “an overdose.”

“I have taken an overdose. There is no other way to get respect. I am not at home, I’m at a hotel, somewhere in Ireland, under another name,” the Irish singer wrote. “If I wasn’t posting this, my kids and family wouldn’t even find out. Was dead for another fortnight since none of them bother their hole with me for a minute.”

According to TMZ, a police alert described O’Connor as “missing suicidal.” She was reportedly last seen on a motorized bicycle with a pink basket. She was wearing a black parka, black leather pants and a sweatshirt with “Ireland” written on the back.

Arsenio Hall recently sued O’Connor for defamation after she claimed that Hall supplied drugs to the late music icon Prince. The comedian is seeking $5 million in damages.
