Rosie O’Donnell’s Daughter Chelsea Found, “Safe In Police Custody”
Rosie O’Donnell‘s 17-year-old daughter Chelsea has been found, and is safely in police custody.
The former talk show host tweeted the news Tuesday evening, writing, “chelsea has been found and is safe in police custody – thank u all for the help and light #missingchildren.” Chelsea and her therapy dog Bear were located at a residence in Barnegat Light, New Jersey, which is more than 100 miles away from O’Donnell’s house. She was supposedly found after using a cell phone that allowed police to track its pinging signals.
As Gossip Cop reported earlier, Chelsea disappeared from O’Donnell’s Nyack, New York home last Sunday. After enlisting police help in finding her daughter, the star took to social media and her official blog to ask the public to pass on any information about Chelsea’s whereabouts. O’Donnell revealed that her daughter suffers from mental illness, but had stopped taking her medication.
A number of celebrities, including Jimmy Fallon, Roseanne, and Christina Applegate, helped spread the word on social media by tweeting about Chelsea on Tuesday afternoon. O’Donnell is mom to five adopted kids, with Chelsea being her second-oldest child and oldest daughter. Gossip Cop will update if more information emerges.
