US TV HOST Rosie O’Donnell has tweeted for help tracing her teenage daughter, who she says hasn’t been seen for a week.

O’Donnell says 17-year-old Chelsea left home with her therapy dog and has stopped taking her medication.

The presenter issued this appeal on the social media site today:

A message on her website said Chelsea O’Donnell had been reported missing to police.

“Nyack, New York police authorities have been looking for her in the Rockland County area since Sunday, August 16,” the post said.

“She was last seen Tuesday, August 11.

“She was wearing a black sweatshirt hoodie, dark ripped blue jeans, women’s grey converse sneakers and a black backpack.

“Chelsea has a large tattoo on her right side of a dream catcher with the word ‘Breathe.’

“She left home with her 6 month old therapy dog named Bear. The dog is a 9 lbs brown and black terrier.

The presenter’s appeal for help says Chelsea “stopped taking her medicine and is in need of medical attention”.

The 17-year-old is the adopted daughter of O’Donnell and her ex-partner Kelli Carpenter.

Nyack, New York is a suburb of New York City, some 31km north of Manhattan.
