Rosie O'Donnell pleads for Chelsea's return amid signs that daughter is in need
January 15, 2017
Rosie O'Donnell has taken to social media in an attempt to reconnect with estranged daughter Chelsea, who ran away from home last summer and is now living with a boyfriend.
The former co-host of "The View," O'Donnell posted a photo of herself and Chelsea in happier times with the hashtag #comeONkid via Instagram, along with a parable about people begging God to save them in a flood, and God sending boats to bring them to safety.
The 18-year-old Chelsea O'Donnell ran away from home about four months ago, but was on Instagram herself recently, trying to sell her dog and an iPod Nano, according to a report from Yahoo News.
All things considered, it seems a bit more stable for the younger O'Donnell, who disappeared in August of 2015, then was found living with 25-year-old Steven Sheerer, a convicted heroin dealer she had met on Tinder, according to a report by The Daily Mail.
Chelsea was adopted by O'Donnell as a baby, but recently made contact with her birth mother, Deanna Micoley, who claimed Chelsea was "stolen" from her when she was 20 years old.
"I was married to a guy, Lance, who was into the drug situation and he shot me up with heroin and had me sign away my rights," Micoley told The Daily Mail. "It took a long time for me to come to some understanding about it. You have your daughter for two months and then she's just ripped from you ... it's hard."
