Authorities in the Chicago suburb of Wilmette have reportedly found Irish singer Sinead O’Connor safe, ending a scare in which she became the subject of a search amid fears that she was suicidal.
Police in Wilmette confirmed that O’Connor was found today and is safe, USA Today reports. She was missing for more than a day.
“The local paper, The Wilmette Beacon, also reported the news, and added that O’Connor has been staying with friends in Wilmette for several weeks,” USA Today reports. “A check-for-well-being alert, sent out by police Sgt. Michael Robinson in Wilmette on Monday, said O’Connor, 49, went for a bike ride in the area on Sunday at 6 a.m. and did not immediately return.”
As we reported previously, O’Connor was recently sued for $5 million by Arsenio Hall over O’Connor’s allegations that Hall was involved in Prince’s drug use.
