Rosie O’Donnell’s 17-year-old daughter, Chelsea, has been found hours after the comedian made a plea to the public for help in locating her.

“Rosie wants to thank everyone for their help, especially the South Nyack, NY and Barneget Light, NJ police departments,” O’Donnell’s spokeswoman, Cindi Berger, said in a statement. “Her daughter Chelsea O’Donnell has been located by the police and is safe in their custody.”

Chelsea O’Donnell was found in New Jersey, where authorities reported she was in good health, South Nyack Police Department detective James Coyle told The Washington Post.

Police had been searching for Chelsea O’Donnell since Sunday and she had been last seen on Aug. 11, according to a statement posted Tuesday on the comedian’s Web site.

“Chelsea stopped taking her medicine and is in need of medical attention” and left home with her therapy dog, the statement read.

Berger said in a statement: “Chelsea, like millions of people, lives with mental illness. It has been a difficult road for Chelsea and her family and they just want her back safe.”
