WILMETTE, Ill. -- Singer-songwriter Sinead O'Connor was found safe after being reported missing in Chicago's northern suburbs earlier Monday.

Wilmette police spokesman Eric Peterson said Monday that O'Connor has been located, though he wouldn't say where she was found.

But he says the singer "is safe and no longer considered a missing or endangered person."

Police released a statement Monday morning saying they had put out a well-being check for O'Connor after she reportedly went on a bike ride Sunday morning and never returned.

O'Connor, who is most popular for the 1990 release "Nothing Compares 2 U" that was written by Prince, went out on a bicycle ride at about 6 a.m. on Sunday and had not been seen since.

What she was doing in Wilmette is still unclear. TMZ had reported that police listed her as a "missing suicidal."

She had gotten medical treatment back in November after leaving an angry suicidal note for her family.

O'Connor was recently in the news for being sued by comedian Arsenio Hall for making statements after Prince's death that Hall supplied Prince with drugs.
