Police documents show a search last month in suburban Chicago for Sinead O’Connor was launched after a doctor concerned about her welfare contacted police.
The Associated Press obtained documents Wednesday from Wilmette police through a Freedom of Information Act request. They show that the May 15 call prompted a search of hotels by 10 police departments. The Irish singer-songwriter was found later that day at an unidentified hotel. The police report doesn’t indicate her condition at the time.
The name of the doctor who made the call to police is blacked out.
A post on O’Connor’s Facebook page after she was found referred to emotional trauma she had been through over the years.
O’Connor scored an international hit in 1990 with her rendition of Prince’s ballad ”Nothing Compares 2 U.”
