TMZ reports Chicago Police Department received a call from Irish police saying that the 49-year-old contacted her family Thursday evening claiming to be suicidal.

According to the entertainment website, O'Connor allegedly told relatives that she planned to jump off a bridge in the Chicago area.

A police alert on the Chicago Police Department scanner said, "The word from the Ireland police sergeant Claire Mulligan, 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."

According to TMZ, Chicago police spotted a woman who fit O'Connor's description, but it was not her.

Although, the Chicago police claim it is not an active search, but officers were told to be on the lookout for the singer, TMZ reported.

Recall that the singer on May 15, 2016 had failed to return from a bike ride she had taken.

The reports reveal that O'Connor had last been seen on Sunday, May 15, when she had taken a bike ride in the Chicago suburbs of Wilmette.

O'Connor had, in November 2015, posted a suicide threat on Facebook, revealing that she had taken an overdose because of a “horrifying set of betrayals.”
