Irish singer Sinead O'Connor found safe after going missing in US

Irish singer Sinead O'Connor, who did not return from a bicycle ride on Sunday in the US state of Illinois, has been located and is no longer considered a missing person, police said Monday afternoon.

"Sinead O’Connor has been located," said a statement by police in Wilmette, Illinois. "She is safe and is no longer listed as a missing/endangered person."

O'Connor was reported missing after setting off on a bicycle early Sunday morning in the town of Wilmette, a northern suburb of Chicago, and not returning. There were no details on how or where she was found.

The singer, who has a history of depression and other mental health issues, was recently in the news after accusing former US talk show host Arsenio Hall of providing drugs to the late musician Prince, who was found dead in his home April 21. Hall sued O'Connor for libel.

The Irish songstress had a global hit in the early 1990s with a cover version of Prince's song Nothing Compares 2 U.
