Sinead O’Connor is missing and according to Chicago Police, she may be suicidal.
The Irish singer went out on a bicycle ride Sunday around 1 p.m. in the Chicago suburb of Wilmette, and has not been seen since. TMZ reports:
According to an alert sent out by cops … O’Connor is being classified as “missing suicidal.” She was last seen on a Raleigh motorized bicycle with a pink basket. She’s not exactly in typical cycling gear — black parka, black leather pants and a sweatshirt with “Ireland” on the back.
O’Connor made headlines earlier this month after claiming that Arsenio Hall was the late Prince’s drug dealer.
The 49-year-old also received medical treatment six months ago after leaving an angry suicidal note for her family. O’Connor’s camp has yet to comment on the news.
