CHICAGO, Ill. – Police in a Chicago suburb are searching for Irish singer Sinead O’Connor.

A check-for-well-being alert, sent out by police Sgt. Michael Robinson in the village of Wilmette, Ill. on Monday, says O’Connor went for a bike ride Sunday around 6 a.m. and never returned.

Police said they had no further information.

In November, O-Connor posted an alarming suicide threat on Facebook, saying she had taken an overdose because of a “horrifying set of betrayals,” according to a USA Today report.

“There is only so much any woman can be expected to bear,” the post read. “I’ve taken an overdose. There is no other way to get respect.”

She said in the post she was not at home. “I’m at a hotel, somewhere in Ireland, under another name. If I wasn’t posting this, my kids and family wouldn’t even find out.”
