Singer Sinead O’Connor has been reported missing outside of Chicago and law enforcement officers are investigating, the Wilmette, Ill., police department said Monday morning in a statement.
“O’Connor reportedly left the Wilmette area for a bicycle ride yesterday [Sunday] at 6:00 a.m. and has not returned,” the statement said. “A caller has expressed concern for her well-being and no other information is available at this time.”Wilmette is about 20 miles north of Chicago along Lake Michigan. What O’Connor, who is 49, was doing in Illinois is not known.
O’Connor was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at age 33 after a suicide attempt, but was weaned off her meds 8 years later after getting varying opinions on her symptoms. She was recently embroiled in a public spat with Arsenio Hall over the death of Prince.
