Monday May 16, 2016 –Police in Wilmette, a suburb of Chicago have found Sinead O’Connor safe and sound.
No other information is available at this time, police say.
Per WMAQ-TV, an NBC local affiliate, a friend of O’Connor’s said she’d left Ireland in January and has been staying in the Chicago area with friends.
The mother of four has spoken openly about her ongoing battle with depression before. In a 2014 interview with Oprah Winfrey, she explained, “I don’t think I was born with bipolar disorder—I believe it was created as a result of the violence I experienced…It didn’t really help in terms of being well or a stable person the fact that I really was getting kicked around, metaphorically speaking, by the media for years,” she says. “It seemed every time I went to work, all I was getting told was what a dreadful, terrible person I was. And I couldn’t really manage all of that on top of everything else.”
