Chelsea ODonnell missing

Update: Rosie O'Donnell's missing daughter Chelsea has been found safe in New Jersey.

"Chelsea has been found and is safe in police custody — thank u all for the help and light," O'Donnell tweeted at 6:25 p.m. on Tuesday. She added she was on her way to pick up the 17-year-old runaway and her beloved therapy dog, "Bear."

Chelsea O'Donnell, the 17-year-old daughter of comedienne Rosie O'Donnell, has apparently run away from home.

Nyack, NY police have been searching for Chelsea in the Rockland County area since Sunday. She went missing on Tuesday, August 11.

Chelsea, who suffers from an unspecified mental illness, reportedly stopped taking her medicine. Police do not suspect foul play in her disappearance.

O'Donnell, 53, tweeted a photo of her daughter Chelsea and her beloved pet dog, writing, "chelsea and her dog bear - last seen in nyack ny."

A statement on O'Donnell's website reads:

"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 ... Chelsea stopped taking her medicine and is in need of medical attention."

O'Donnell has 4 other adopted kids, who have been raised by multiple moms. O'Donnell -- who has been "married" twice to women -- divorced her 2nd wife, Michelle Rounds, in 2012. O'Donnell and Rounds are currently in court battling over custody of O'Donnell's youngest adopted child, Dakota, 2.

O'Donnell recently welcomed a baby with singer and songwriter Sophie B. Hawkins, 47. Both Hawkins and O'Donnell deny being in a relationship.

Thanks to Tami of for the tip.

    Mental illness is no joke. Hope she's found soon.

  • Tippie Toes

    Gosh I hope she is found safe and right away - the horror of not knowing where your child is.

    Hope she's found safe. And Sandra, I'm proud of you. Minimal shade. You could have written, and I expected much worse.
    You blooming Ma. You blooming....

    Hope they find her safe


    hope they find her. i can't imagine what's its like for a child to grow up in a household with lesbians or gay partners/parents . it confuses the child and its not a normal relationship

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    You know she had to slip a jab in somewhere. I was surprised that's all she said.

  • Renee Bee

    Praying for her safe return. Also hoping that miserable creature named Donald Trump has some respect and do not comment on this child. He has a long running vendetta with Rosie.

  • SummerBaby

  • DDNY

  • Wellbalancedlibra

    Sandra, I am still waiting for that Shad Moss story..

  • Sassy24

    How do you know that?


    get real. children look up to their parents ----seeing two women or men playing house sends the wrong message. Its Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve

  • Sassy24

    You get real, you have no facts just talking out your arse.

  • OpinionHated

    Donald Trump got her stashed at one of his jotels....

  • OpinionHated

    17yo with large tat...

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Praying she's found safely.

  • Everclear1972

    You would run away from home too if Rosie were your mother.

    That old sweaty, musty fat dyke.

    She must have nuts or a sperm bank in her basement because every
    time you see her new girlfriend she's giving birth to Rosie's newest baby.


  • Well.well$well

    What about children who grow up heterosexual households and are straight f'd up? I know a couple. Just because one has straight parents doesn't guarantee a well balanced child...At.all...

  • That’s Interesting


  • Butterflysun… Spill Da Tea

    I really really want to care...... (plzzz insert all necessary sarcasm) #richfolksproblems

  • hottlanta

    Folks always trying to tell single heterosexual women not to bring a lot of men around their kids so it is alright to say single lesbian women don't need to bring a lot of women around their kids. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.

  • SummerBaby

    Yes indeed! ??

  • Yani

    I understand what you are saying, some cases may be different but; I do believe some kids may think that is normal...until they are older and their peers tell them differently. The way things are going today, it may not be a big deal and there may be more peers who relate.

  • suganspice68

    Me too,Rosie looks like she is a piece of work!


    Run Chelsea run!!!!!

  • SandraRose

    Thanks hun.

  • Forrest

    I sure the girl ran away because her mother is a bitter lesbian.

  • Forrest

    Nobody wants to grow up in a house of lesbos...Get real..Fat and ugly women with one trying to be a man. A joke.

  • Forrest

    Safer there than with the trash her mother sleeps with.

  • Sassy24

    You get real

  • imright

    she was found w her 25 year old dog food addicted boy friend!!

    Oh Sheila!
