WILMETTE, Ill. --  Singer-songwriter Sinead O'Connor was found safe after being reported missing in Chicago's northern suburbs earlier Monday.

Sources tell KFOR sister station WGN that she was located at a nearby hotel, and has been taken to a local hospital.

O'Connor, who is most popular for the 1990 release "Nothing Compares To You" that was written by Prince, went out on a bicycle ride at about 6 a.m. in Wilmette Sunday and had not been seen since.

What she was doing in Wilmette is still unclear. TMZ had reported that police listed her as a "missing suicidal."

She was last seen on a Raleigh motorized bicycle with a pink basket wearing a black parka, black leather pants and a sweatshirt with "Ireland" on the back. She had gotten medical treatment back in November after leaving an angry suicidal note for her family.

O'Connor was recently in the news for being sued by comedian Arsenio Hall for making statements after Prince's death that Hall supplied Prince with drugs.
