Rosie O’Donnell put out a plea earlier this week, for help in locating her missing daughter Chelsea. A day after she enlisted the help of those on the internet, the 17-year-old was located in the New Jersey home of a man she met on Tinder.
25-year-old Steve Sheerer was once convicted of possession of heroin. He’s definitely not the kind of man any mom wants in the company of her 17-year-old daughter.

So how was Rosie O’Donnell’s daughter located?
People magazine reports that Chelsea’s phone number was traced to Sheerer’s home.
Chelsea was missing before Rosie O’Donnell realized it. She was supposed to have been staying with friends, but that wasn’t the case.
“Chelsea left the house a week ago. Rosie thought she was with friends and that was not the case. She just didn’t come home,” a source said when it was determined that Chelsea was missing. “She was missing for a week. People were looking for her locally. As soon as it became national news, the police were able to find her.”

Rosie O’Donnell is most fearful of the fact that Sheerer is a drug addict.
“Rosie is very concerned about the guy she was found with . . . Rosie is extremely concerned about everything and is trying to figure out what to do next,” a source says.
Rosie O’Donnell’s daughter suffers from an undisclosed mental illness and wasn’t taking her medication at the time of her disappearance.
Hopefully Rosie O’Donnell gets the answers she needs, as well as the resources necessary to work with Chelsea in light of this very frightening incident.
