NEW YORK – Rosie O’Donnell’s 17-year-old daughter has been found by police safe in a New Jersey home, hours after it was publicly revealed she had been missing for a week. Chelsea O’Donnell had left the family’s home a week earlier with a therapy dog, and her mother’s concern was intensified because she had not been taking needed medication. Family spokeswoman Cindi Berger said Chelsea O’Donnell suffers from mental illness.

Rosie O’Donnell lives in South Nyack, New York, about 25 miles north of New York City, and police there had been involved in searching for her daughter since Sunday. Rockland County police informed authorities in Barneget, New Jersey on Tuesday that they believed Chelsea was there.

It was not immediately clear what relationship O’Donnell had with the people who lived in the house.
