Even though Rosie O’Donnell’s 17-year-old daughter Chelsea was found safe on Tuesday, August 18 after she was reported missing with her therapy dog Bear, Rosie is still very concerned about her daughter.

Chelsea, who suffers from mental illness, was found by authorities in Barnegat Township, New Jersey, and reports now indicate she was with an alleged heroin addict who she had met online and who housed her for a week.

“They met on Tinder. Chelsea is underage and he is 27-years-old,” an insider told Us Weekly about the situation while another source told People that Rosie is worried about her daughter.

“Rosie is very concerned about the guy she was found with. Rosie is extremely concerned about everything and is trying to figure out what to do next.”

The relationship between Rosie and Chelsea seems to be somewhat strained as Rosie had not seen her daughter since August 11, but did not report she was missing until nearly a week later because she believed she was with friends.

Rosie’s Twitter posts also indicate problems after replying to a user who wrote, “BUT @Rosie IS A Perfect Mom… how can this be?” with “no mom is perfect – we all do our best.” On Wednesday night she also tweeted, “when someone u love is drowning in the rapids – u throw everything u can into the water – hoping they will grab on – stay afloat #believe.”
