According to police, Chelsea was found in the Shore area of New Jersey and the South Nyack police were taking her to the police station before bringing her home.
The former View co-host's rep issued a statement to ET after Chelsea was found, thanking police for their help in locating O'Donnell's daughter: "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 had revealed Tuesday morning that her 17-year-old daughter, who suffers from mental health issues, had been missing for a week. A source close to the family confirmed to ET that the family did not suspect foul play nor fear that Chelsea was abducted.
"Chelsea, like millions of people, lives with mental illness. It has been a difficult road for Chelsea and her family and they just want her back safe," Rosie's rep, Cindi Berger, told ET at the time.
