Chelsea O’Donnell, the daughter of Rosie O’Donnell, has been found after having gone missing for nearly a week after running away from home.

According to TMZ, the 19-year-old was discovered in the town of Barnegat Light, New Jersey, close to the Jersey Shore, and was found by pinging a cell phone she was using.

The site reports:

Police found Chelsea and Bear in the town of Barnegat Light on the Jersey shore … roughly 130 miles south of Rosie’s home in Rockland County, NY. Law enforcement sources tell us Chelsea was located by pinging a cell phone she’d used.

We reported that Chelsea had been missing earlier today, following a plea made by the TV host to help find her, as she was concerned about her not taking medication for her mental illness.

Rosie tweeted the good news to her Twitter:

We’re glad that Chelsea has been found to be safe after the scary news from earlier.
