Chicago, IL, United States (4E) – Wilmette Department of Police said on Monday that singer Sinead O’Connor has been found safe and sound after she was reported to be missing.
The singer was said to be found safe at around 1:45 P.M. at a Chicago suburb. The Wilmette Police said in a statement hours before she was found safe that they were seeking to check her well-being. Accordingly, she reportedly left the area for a bike ride on Sunday at around 6:00 A.M. but she never returned.
No other details regarding what she did after the bike ride and why she did not go home after were available. However, this is not the first time that she has made headlines regarding her wellbeing.
In November of last year, O’Connor was reported to be safe and sound after she wrote on her Facebook page what appeared to be a suicidal note. She said in her post that she took an overdose.
Reports say that O’Connor has left Ireland last January and has been staying in the Chicago area with her friends. She said in her post last November that she was consumed by sadness due to her family. She wrote back then, “There is only so much any woman can be expected to bear. What was done to me this week was appalling cruelty. By my husband, my family, by St Pats and by An Gardai Siochana , by my son, Jake and by Donal Lunny and Angela singleton, by my son’s girlfriend, his friends…”
She continued to reveal in her post that the father of her children would not allow her to see them and that they do not even care if she is still alive or not.
The mother of four has talked about her battle with depression in the past. During a 2014 interview with Oprah Winfrey, she shared that she does not think she was born with bipolar disorder but she believes it was created due to the violence she has experienced.
O’Connor also made headlines last week after she claimed that comedian Arsenio Hall supplied drugs to Prince, which led to his death.
O’Connor is yet to comment on the latest report involving her.
