Rosie O'Donnell is asking for help finding her missing 17-year-old daughter.
Police in Nyack, N.Y., are hunting for Chelsea O'Donnell, who was last seen a week ago, and her mother tweeted that she may be in NYC.
She may also need help.
The teenager had stopped taking her prescription medication and needs immediate medical attention, the desperate O'Donnell said on her website Tuesday.
"Chelsea, like millions of people, lives with mental illness," said O'Donnell's spokeswoman, Cindi Berger. "It has been a difficult road for Chelsea and her family and they just want her back safe."
ROSIE O'DONNELL 'STOLE' ADOPTED DAUGHTER: BIOLOGICAL MOTHER
Chelsea left home with her 6-month-old therapy dog, Bear, on Aug. 11, her family said. She was wearing a black sweatshirt hoodie, dark ripped blue jeans and women's gray converse sneakers and was carrying a black backpack.
"She's not classified as missing, but there is an open investigation. Her whereabouts are unknown," a rep for the Nyack Police Department said.
He said the department was working closely with ODonnells family.
Chelsea was reported missing Sunday.
Her birth mother, Deanna Micoley, told Radar Online she last spoke to the teen on Aug. 8.
She asked me where I was living, because she was going to come see me, the Wisconsin woman said but she hasnt heard from her since.
I wasnt aware she was missing, she told Radar. I dont know where she would have gone. Dont know who shes with or who her friends are. Im very worried. Extremely worried.
O'Donnell, 53, stepped down as co-host of "The View" back in February, saying she was putting "family first."
"Rosie has teens and an infant at home that need her attention," Berger said then.
O'Donnell soon afterward filed for divorce from her wife of three years, Michelle Rounds, and became enmeshed in a fight with the adopted Chelsea's birth mother.
The National Enquirer reported that Chelsea tracked Micoley down in November, after finding a number for Micoley's father.
"Chelsea told him that she was his granddaughter. He called me and broke the news," Micoley told the Enquirer in May. "It was the moment I'd been waiting and praying for the last 17 years: I had found my precious daughter!"
Micoley, 37, told the Enquirer she and Chelsea communicated via texts and Facebook messages, but O'Donnell tried to come between them.
She also accused the "League of Their Own" star of having "stolen" the girl shed named Kayla because she was on drugs when she gave her up to an adoption agency in 1997.
"I believe Rosie O'Donnell knew that I was in no condition to sign away my parental rights to my daughter," Micoley told the tabloid.
The moms battled over the allegations, with O'Donnell texting Micoley at one point that, "It was all legal. Like it or not. Now stop."
When Micoley accused her of having paid off her ex to push her into the adoption, O'Donnell said, "No way." She said she had put both of them up "in NJ for months," paid their living expenses, bought them a TV and then, "U left," O'Donnell wrote in text messages that were provided to the Enquirer.
Berger told the Enquirer in May the TV talker "encouraged and supported Chelsea's desire to communicate with her birth mother," and found it "disappointing" that she was going public with their differences.
Micoley, now a mother of four living in Wisconsin, could not immediately be reached Tuesday.
She told Radar she blames ODonnell for the girls disappearance.
Rosie should have been paying closer attention to my daughter, she said.
There is nothing I can do but sit here and wait and pray everything is OK.
I don’t believe the poor kid has mental troubles. She’s probably a normal teen who has a horrible, embarrassing, sicko mom. Poor, poor child.
I need a therapy dog just reading all that drama.
I pray she is safe.
Rosie O’Donnell has made a mess of just about everything she’s touched. Her “comedy” career. Her movie career. Her television career. Her personal life. And now the personal life of at least one other person. <p
Ugly, ugly life for an ugly, ugly creature.
Poor kid. With a home life like hers, it's not surprising she's having problems.
Or was I not supposed to notice that she's screwed up because she was raised as an inconvenient fashion accessory for a couple of lesbian "mothers"?
It’s amazing how quickly and easily Rosie adopted all those cute white infants.
For years Rosie trashed her widowed father for the way he raised his family and acted as thought she had all the answers to a happy family, given the chance.
It doesn’t seem to be working out for her.
You’d run the hell away from Rosie too,
maybe she just ran away and hiding at moment so she could be with her bio mother once things settle down
I don’t trust any of these stars who buy pretty white babies. .
Will Megyn Kelly be all over this?
When will she .be 18?
At that age she can be on her own. One good tell all book and she will not have to worry about money.
Hopefully a good friend has offered her a safe place until then
How is it this girl was last seen last Tuesday, but not reported missing until Sunday? Where did Rosie think her daughter was?
She’s been missing a week, correct? And it comes out now?
A mom who wants to rub period blood in people’s faces
priorities: daughter missing,and she’s spending her time blasting donald trump/ no wonder the poor kid is messed up
Is O’Donnell running for president?
I think she ran away can you imagine having Rosie O’Fat as your mom
All teens are a little messed up, but this poor kid had a druggie mom who gave her up to a crazy woman.
When did she do that?
