IRISH singer Sinead O’Connor has gone missing in America, according to a report from celebrity gossip website TMZ.  

O’Connor, who has spoken openly about her battle with depression, is said to be missing in Chicago, and police have reason to believe she’s a suicide risk.

Last year, the singer sparked global concern for her well-being after a Facebook post on her page said that she had “taken an overdose.”

More News:

The TMZ report states: “The singer went out on a bicycle ride Sunday around 1pm in the Chicago suburb of Wilmette, and has not been seen since. Someone called cops to report she hadn’t returned from the bike ride … and officers are now searching for her.”

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.”
