Singer Sinéad O'Connor has reportedly been found safe after she went for a bike ride Sunday morning and didn't immediately return. 

Wilmette police initially put out the alert for O'Connor on Monday, saying the department was checking on her well-being. Family and friends can ask law enforcement to do well-being or welfare checks if a person has not responded within a reasonable amount of time and if there's reason to believe they could be in danger.

O'Connor's disappearance came about two weeks after she suggested entertainer Arsenio Hall was Prince's drug dealer. One week later, Hall reportedly sued O'Connor for defamation.

O'Connor has often used Facebook to share her thoughts on music, social issues and personal revelations. 

But the singer's mental health has been in question because of some of her Facebook posts. Pitchfork reported last year that O'Connor received treatment after representatives said she was "unwell."
