UPDATE 5/16/16 – Police in a Chicago suburb stated O’Connor was found safe and did not released any further details.
Original story: ABC 7 News is reporting that singer Sinead O’Connor is missing from Willamette, Illinois after she went for a bike ride on Sunday and never came back home.
Her last post on Facebook at 6:12 a.m. on Sunday morning was: Jake, kindly go to the court on Tuesday and take custody your brother from Tusla. My lawyer will be making the illegal way yourself and Donal got him into Tusla (lying to the cops etc) known to the judge. expect to be in trouble. In fact you’d best bring a lawyer of your own. And do not abandon your brother or any other of my babies again. What you have done to your brother and your mother is LITERALLY criminal.
A post on May 13 gives some clarity to the above post:
OPEN LETTER TO MY SON SHANE
Baby, I’ve been trying to get you out of care but Tusla are being monsters.
I have to back off because they are hurting me so badly I get unwell again if I go near them.
The best thing I can do is advise you get a solicitor of your own which you are now entitled to because you are 12 and bring a case of your own against Tusla, under the Children’s rights clauses of the constitution. You’re entitled to bring a case and to have your voice heard. And this would be the first of such cases brought so you’d be making history as well! You want to be with your mother and you’re being prevented. Your mother is being bullied so badly by Tusla she can’t manage your release. Your lawyer will have to do it for you . If no one wants you to come to me then insist on going to Jake. You deserve better than the way you’re currently being looked after. I love you. My baby. I’m waiting for you and will wait as long as I have to. I can’t fight Tusla any more because they hurt me too much . You’re legally entitled to fight them yourself. So.. Do. I believe in you. You’re my son. Show ’em you’re your own boss. Jake is not your boss. Nor am I. Nor is your dad. Nor is Tusla. Only God and you. So take your legal rights my son and fight. I’ll pay the lawyer obviously. But YOU have to be the person to request a lawyer. I can’t employ one on your behalf. Welcome to ireland. Where kids like you don’t get told their legal rights. As long as no one tells you your rights how can you know you have to request a lawyer? Well now you know. Soon as you say the word, Tusla have to get you a lawyer. That’s the law. I love you my baby.

According to Sinead, her 11-year-old son Shane was put into foster care in Ireland.
Some media is reporting she is suicidal, as TMZ is saying she was classified as such by the authorities. Back in November, O’Connor left a suicidal note for her family, which resulted in her seeking medical treatment.
O’Connor has also posted on Facebook accusations against Arsenio Hall. She posted on social media after Prince’s death that actor and talk show host Arsenio Hall was the one that was supplying Prince with the drugs, and she followed up with reporting it to the authorities.
Hall responded by filing a $5 million defamation lawsuit against O’Connor. In the lawsuit Hall claims O’Connor didn’t even like Prince and even “spat on him.”
O’Connor responded on Facebook that the “DEA have taken me seriously enough to be thoroughly questioning all of Prince’s friends and aides from the last thirty years as to his KNOWN history of hard drug use and where he obtained his drugs.”
