Rosie O'Donnell's teenage daughter has been found safe at the Jersey Shore after being reported missing out of Rockland County, New York.

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


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.
