Sinead O'Connor not Missing [UPDATE: MISSING]

And no, that's not the title of a new album from her. But it could be, I suppose. Might be good therapy.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/m...nnor/84440592/

This could be in Music Talk, but since this isn't about her singing career...and more to do with her mental state or even a potential crime...it's in this forum.

Sinead O'Connor, the Irish singer with a history of mental illness, is missing in a Chicago suburb, according to police.

A check-for-well-being alert, sent out by police Sgt. Michael Robinson in the village of Wilmette, Ill. on Monday, says O'Connor, 49, went for a bike ride in the area on Sunday at 6 a.m. and has yet to return.

An unnamed caller expressed concern for her well being, according to the alert.

Police in the north Chicago suburb said they had no further information, and declined to answer more questions.

But according to her Facebook page, about three hours after she was last seen according to the alert, she posted a long message that was unclear and confusing. It did not mention where she was when she posted it.

O'Connor has claimed to be suicidal in the past, and has received mental-health treatment for it.

Most recently, in November, she posted an alarming suicide threat on Facebook, saying she had taken an overdose because of a “horrifying set of betrayals.”

“There is only so much any woman can be expected to bear,” the post read. “I’ve taken an overdose. There is no other way to get respect.”

She said in the post she was not at home. "I’m at a hotel, somewhere in Ireland, under another name. If I wasn’t posting this, my kids and family wouldn’t even find out.”
Sinead has become more mentally disturbed over the years.

She has always been her own person with her own unique views.. Glad to hear she is found safe.. With a lot of famous people, they get into so many bad things that one wonders how they manage to live day by day.

It actually lends an air of suspense to this otherwise risible thread.

Apparently she was at the Best Western in Morton Grove. Not exactly a tourist hotspot.

I presume she either has an album, a book or a tour coming up and she was looking for free publicity.

That's a bit of an exaggeration, I'm not that special.

UPDATE: Suicide watch?

Chicago police have advised officers to be on the lookout for Irish singer-songwriter Sinead O'Connor after receiving a report she threatened to jump from a bridge.

Police spokesman Officer Thomas Sweeney said Thursday there isn't an active police search for O'Connor. He said Irish authorities reported O'Connor contacted her family, saying she was suicidal.

Sweeney said officers spotted someone threatening to jump from a bridge over a Chicago expressway, but it turned out to be a 54-year-old man. He was taken to a hospital.

Last month, suburban Chicago police put out a well-being check for O'Connor after she reportedly went on a bike ride Sunday morning and didn't return. She was later found safe at a hotel.

I would definitely double check that.

So basically then, nothing compares 2 u, but a 54 year old man.
