O’Donnell released a statement on her website that reads:

Nyack, New York police authorities have been looking for her in the Rockland County area since Sunday, August 16. 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.’ She left home with her 6 month old therapy dog named Bear. The dog is a 9 lbs brown and black terrier. Chelsea stopped taking her medicine and is in need of medical attention. Any information please contact authorities at 845-358-0206 or 911.

She also shared a recent photo of her daughter below:

Chelsea is one of O’Donnell’s three children with ex-wife Kelli Carpenter. Earlier this year, her biological mother reportedly accused O’Donnell of “stealing” her away, arguing she was not fit to sign away her parental rights at the time of the adoption.

UPDATE – 6:45 PM E.S.T Five hours after Chelsea was reported missing, she was found by police and taken into custody. Rosie O’Donnell alerted her followers with this tweet, thanking them for their help:
