Chelsea O'Donnell, 17, had last been seen on Tuesday, Aug. 11. Police in Nyack, New York, had been searching the Rockland County area since Sunday.
A message posted on Rosie O'Donnell's website said that Chelsea left with her 6-month-old therapy dog named Bear, a 9-pound brown and black terrier.
The website said Chelsea stopped taking her medicine and was in need of medical attention. She was expected to be reunited with her family Tuesday night.
