Rosie O'Donnell is desperately searching for clues as to where her daughter Chelsea O'Donnell may be. The 17-year-old reportedly has been missing since Aug. 11. In a new post on her personal blog, Rosie shares details about the teen's disappearance.

The post details Chelsea's disappearance, providing readers with information about when she left home and what she was wearing at the time. According to the blog, Chelsea left her home in Nyack, New York, Aug. 11. Although local police have been carefully searching the area since Aug. 16, her family fears she may be in need of medical treatment.
