SINEAD O'CONNOR SUICIDE WATCH ON CHICAGO BRIDGES
Cops are on the hunt for Sinead O'Connor after someone in her family told cops she's threatening to kill herself.
Chicago PD got a call from Irish authorities saying Sinead contacted her family an hour ago and said she was suicidal and planned to jump off a bridge in the Chicago area.
We're told cops actually spotted someone who looked like she fit the profile but it wasn't Sinead.
TMZ obtained scanner audio from the PD giving officers the heads up. We're told there's not an active search ... but cops were told to be on the lookout.
Sinead's been struggling with depression lately -- just last month she was reported missing and her friends and family feared suicide -- she was later found at a Chicago hotel.From ABC7 (WLS):
CHICAGO POLICE ADVISED TO BE ON LOOKOUT FOR SINEAD O'CONNOR
CHICAGO (WLS) -- An all-call was issued for Chicago police Thursday, urging officers in the city to be on the lookout for Irish singer-songwriter Sinead O'Connor after police in Ireland received a report that she may be suicidal and threatening to jump from a bridge.
"Dublin, Ireland is saying that at 1530 hours, Sinead O'Connor called and said I'm on a bridge in Chicago and I'm going to jump," police said in their all-call.
Police spokesman Officer Thomas Sweeney said Thursday there isn't an active police search for O'Connor.
Around the same time the call went out, officers spotted someone threatening to jump from a bridge over a Chicago expressway, but it turned out to be a 54-year-old man. He was taken to a hospital.
Last month, O'Connor disappeared from a home in Wilmette, her friends saying she rode away on a bicycle and never returned. She was found safe at a suburban hotel.
O'Connor has used social media to call out family members overseas and it's possible she reached out to them again Thursday, leading to the call to Dublin police. Her representatives have not responded to requests for comment.
