Sinead O'Connor has been found safe in suburban Chicago, the Wilmette, Illinois, police department reported Monday after initially issuing a well-being check for the Irish recording artist a day earlier.

Authorities said that O'Connor, 49, had been last seen going for a bicycle ride at 6 a.m. on Sunday but did not return, according to a statement released by Wilmette police. A concerned caller told police they were worried about her well-being.

"We generated an information bulletin for local law enforcement, which has apparently made its way to social media," Wilmette Police Chief Brian King told the Chicago Tribune. "Officers conducted checks of the area in which she was last observed, including parks and beaches."

TMZ reported that O'Connor had been spotted on a Raleigh motorized bicycle with a pink basket.

"She's not exactly in typical cycling gear — black parka, black leather pants, and a sweatshirt with 'Ireland' on the back," the celebrity gossip site noted.

Police updated the bulletin on Monday at 1:45 p.m. stating that O'Connor had been found safe.

"Sinead O'Connor has been located," the statement read, offering no other details on her whereabouts for the more than 24 hours she was missing. "She is safe and is no longer listed as a missing/endangered person."

The singer recently feuded with former talk show host Arsenio Hall after the death of Prince when O'Connor claimed that Hall provided drugs to the late singer, according to "Entertainment Tonight." Prince died April 21 and the circumstances remain under investigation.

Hall responded with a $5 million libel lawsuit against O'Connor after she made her charges on Facebook.

"Desperate, attention-seeker Sinead O'Connor has maliciously published outlandish defamatory lies about comedian Arsenio Hall, falsely accusing him of supplying illegal 'hard drugs' 'over the decades' to the recently deceased musical artist, Prince, and of spiking her with drugs once years ago," Hall's attorney's wrote, according to "Entertainment Tonight."

Last November, O'Connor left what appeared to be an angry suicide note on Facebook but she was later found safe in Dublin, according to TMZ.
