Rosie O’Donnell has revealed that her 17-year-old daughter Chelsea has been found safe and well.

The 53-year-old comedienne took to Twitter to share the happy news with fans on Tuesday.

Rosie told her followers that 17-year-old Chelsea, whose mother is Rosie’s ex-wife Kelli Carpenter, is now safe in police custody.

“Thank u for all the help and light #missingchildren (sic),” Rosie wrote.

"Rosie wants to thank everyone for their help, especially the South Nyack, NY and Barneget Light, NJ police departments. Her daughter Chelsea O’Donnell has been located by the police and is safe in their custody," her representative added to

Earlier in the day, Rosie posted a statement on her website detailing her daughter’s disappearance.

“Rosie O’Donnell’s 17 year old daughter, Chelsea O’Donnell was reported missing. Nyack, New York police authorities have been looking for her in the Rockland County area since Sunday, August 16,” it began. “She was last seen Tuesday, August 11. 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.’”

Chelsea left the family home with her six-month-old dog called Bear. The pup is a 9lbs brown and black terrier. But Rosie’s concern was heightened as Chelsea would have stopped taking her medication for an undisclosed mental health condition during her disappearance.

A photograph of Chelsea and Bear were published alongside the statement.

No further details have been released about where Chelsea was during the time she was missing.
