Rosie O’Donnell’s daughter has been reported missing.
A post on O’Donnell’s official website calls on the public to help find 17-year-old Chelsea O’Donnell, who was last seen in the Nyack area of New York on Tuesday, August 11:
She was wearing a black sweatshirt hoodie, dark ripped blue jeans, women’s grey converse sneakers and a black backpack. Chelsea has a large tattoo on her right side of a dream catcher with the word ‘Breathe.’ She left home with her 6 month old therapy dog named Bear. The dog is a 9 lbs brown and black terrier. Chelsea stopped taking her medicine and is in need of medical attention.
Anyone with information is urged to call authorities at 845-358-0206.
“Chelsea, like millions of people, lives with mental illness,” a spokeswoman for the O’Donnell family told CNN. “It has been a difficult road for Chelsea and her family and they just want her back safe.”
Rosie O’Donnell also tweeted out an image of her daughter and her dog, Bear:
