WILMETTE, Ill. (AP) — Police in suburban Chicago have put out a well-being check for Irish singer and musician Sinead O'Connor.

Wilmette police released a statement Monday saying O'Connor reportedly left the area for a bicycle ride at 6 a.m. Sunday and hasn't returned. Sgt. Michael Robinson says a caller expressed concern for O'Connor's well-being.

Police said no other information was immediately available.

It's unclear why the singer was in Wilmette, a city about 15 miles north of Chicago.

Paradigm Talent Agency, which represents O'Connor, declined comment. Her publicist didn't immediately return a message.

Comedian Arsenio Hall sued O'Connor this month over a Facebook post in which she accused him of furnishing the late musician Prince with drugs. O'Connor scored a hit in 1990 with her rendition of Prince's "Nothing Compares 2 U."
