Sinead O’Connor posts open letter to family after being reported missing

The Irish singer has been found safe after being reported as missing on Sunday

Sinead O’Connor has penned an open letter to her ex-husband and children in her first social media post since being reported missing by police.

The Irish singer, 49, was reported as missing in the Chicago suburb of Wilmette in the early hours of Sunday morning after failing to return from a bike ride she had decided to take at 6am. She was out of contact for more than a day before being found.

O’Connor was reportedly found at a local hotel and, according to reports, was taken to a nearby hospital. She was described as “safe and is no longer listed as a missing/endangered person”, according to police in the area near Chicago where she was reported missing.


Now O’Connor has taken to Facebook to post an open letter to her ex-husband John Reynolds, in which she references an ongoing custody battle she has been having over her children. Read in full below.

Wilmette police had announced on Monday that they were looking for O’Connor, and issued a check for her well-being, after they said a member of the public called in and expressed concern.

She was reportedly in Wilmette, which is a suburb about 15 miles north of central Chicago, staying with friends.

O’Connor is also being sued for damages by Arsenio Hall over allegations she had previously made about him supplying drugs to Prince, who died in April.
