Rosie O’Donnell’s daughter, Chelsea O’Donnell, has been found after her mother alerted the public on Tuesday that the teen had been missing for a week.
The comedian tweeted out an update later on Tuesday:
As Business Insider reported earlier on Tuesday, Chelsea had last been seen on Tuesday, August 11. Nyack, New York police authorities had been searching for her in the Rockland County area since Sunday, August 16.
It was also believed that she had somehow made it to New York City.
She left her home with her six-month-old therapy dog. The dog’s name is Bear, a terrier weighing 9 lbs, with brown and black fur.
To add even more urgency to the situation, Chelsea had stopped taking her medicine and was in need of medical attention.
O’Donnell alerted her more than 800,000 followers that her daughter was missing with the following tweet:
