Sinead O'Connor 'missing' in the US after bike ride

"Police in a suburb of Chicago are searching for Irish singer Sinead O'Connor who has been reported missing for more than a day.
Wilmette Police "are seeking to check the well-being" of the 49-year-old, they said in a brief press release. Police were called after O'Connor "left the Wilmette area" for a bicycle ride at 0600 local time on Sunday, and had not returned after more than a day."

Sinead is severely bipolar. I've known several folks suffering from that. It's not unusual for them to have bursts of manic energy and take off on road trips or just seemingly vanish without notifying anyone. One of my former neighbors ran off her manic bursts, usually late at night during the summer to avoid the heat. Folks who didn't understand would claim she was out "chasing men" or "running around" because they couldn't conceive of a middle-aged woman simply exercising in an effort to maintain some control over her condition.

I hope Sinead will be okay. She could use some professional medical assistance to get back on a more or less even keel, but some bipolar folks enjoy the energy that comes with the upswings and don't trust meds that squash those highs. And she seems to have a knack for alienating folks, so there may not be anyone around she trusts to tell her when to rein it in a bit.

I missed her when I was out riding. Wilmette is a NIMBY place too, they must not have cared much for her there.

Didnt she just have a spat with Prince's son over his 300 million dollar inheritance? That's enough money to hire a hit man for.

Arsenio Hall is also suing her for defamation, having said on Twitter that she reported him to the police in the county where Prince died, because he supplied Prince with drugs... and said that he drugged her at a party. Seems like she has a history of making pretty wild accusations.

Heard on the radio on the commute home that they found her, she's fine and was in the area the whole time. No explanation.

A play on words, bud. Glad to hear she's ok.
