Rosie O’Donnell posted a link to her website on Twitter Tuesday morning with the news that her 17-year-old daughter, Chelsea O’Donnell (seen on the far right in the above photo taken in 2010), is reportedly missing. O’Donnell adopted Chelsea with her now ex-wife Kelli Carpenter in 1997. The girl was last seen last Tuesday, August 11, and authorities are looking for her in the Rockland County, N.Y. area.

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.

Considering that Chelsea has been missing for an entire week and requires medication, this is especially troubling. There was also a scandal that broke earlier this year involving Chelsea’s birth mother who claimed that she was coerced into giving her daughter up for adoption, which is probably unrelated. Here’s hoping she’s found safe and is reunited with her family soon.
