She added that Chelsea, who suffers from a mental illness, had “stopped taking her medicine and [was] in need of medical attention,” including with the plea a phone number people could call with information.

Hours later, fortunately, a rep for O’Donnell confirmed that law enforcement officials found Chelsea and Bear in a New Jersey town about 130 miles away from where they were last seen.

She was tracked down by pinging her cell phone.

"Rosie wants to thank everyone for their help, especially the South Nyack, New York, and Barneget Light, New Jersey, police departments," said the rep via statement.

"Her daughter Chelsea O’Donnell has been located by the police and is safe in their custody."

Chelsea is Rosie’s daughter with her ex, Kelli Carpenter; they also share custody of three other children.

The star also shares two-year-old daughter Dakota with estranged wife Michelle Rounds.

Rosie, meanwhile, Tweeted about the good news herself, writing on Tuesday evening:

"Chelsea has been found and is safe in police custody – thank u all for the help and light #missingchildren."
