Within hours of pleading for help via social media, Rosie O’Donnell informed the world that her daughter Chelsea, 17, had been found. She had been missing a week.
Chelsea O’Donnell “stopped taking her medicine and is in need of medical attention,” the actress said on her website earlier Tuesday. She said Chelsea left home with her therapy dog.
“Nyack, New York, police authorities have been looking for her in the Rockland County area since Sunday, August 16,” said the post. “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.

The actress, comedian and former “The View” panel member was getting help from social media.
