Rosie O’Donnell’s Daughter Chelsea Missing for a Week – Did She Run Away?
Former talk show host, Rosie O’Donnell’s daughter, Chelsea, who is 17 years old has been missing for a week.
O’Donnell posted on her own website,
“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. 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.”
For some reason, the police didn’t start looking for her until Sunday. That seems a bit odd since she was already missing for five days at that point? If she is not taking her medicine and is in need of medical attention, shouldn’t the police have been looking sooner.
O’Donnell tweeted that her daughter may be in New York City on Tuesday. Maybe she is visiting Rosie’s ex-wife, Kelli Carpenter, who also raised Chelsea until she and Rosie divorced in 2007.
Rosie has been going through quite a bit lately, leaving The View citing stress as the major reason. She then divorced her second wife, who sued Rosie for full custody of their daughter, Dakota, the baby girl they adopted together. Michelle claimed Dakota needed a more protective environment to be raised in.
Hopefully this case has been settled already or Rosie is going to have a hard time proving she is a fit mother, with one of her children gone missing. Problems and all.
What do you think about how long Rosie waited to ask the police for help?? Is there more to the story?
