Wilmette Police have located Sinead O'Connor, after reports that the Irish singer had gone missing.

She was last seen going on a bike ride in the Chicago suburb of Wilmette on Sunday morning at 06.00am - but police say she is "safe and is no longer listed as a missing/endangered person".

A spokesperson for Wilmette police previously said they were "seeking to check the well-being of Sinead O'Connor".

"A caller has expressed concern for her well-being and no other information is available at this time," they said in a statement.

O'Connor is best known for her 1990 hit "Nothing Compares 2 U" which was written by Prince. She has recorded 10 albums throughout her career.

She has experienced health problems during her career and in 2012 cancelled a tour because she was "very unwell due to bipolar disorder".

A spokesperson for O'Connor said they had no comment.
