Chelsea O'Donnell (pictured, in red sweatshirt), the teen who was reported
missing by her famous mother Rosie O'Donnell earlier this month, has made a
grand departure on her 18th birthday. This Monday, Chelsea reportedly
moved out of the home she shared with Rosie and went to go live with her birth
mother, Deanna Micoley.
According to TMZ, Micoley lives in a remote
town in Wisconsin. Just last year, she was reunited with the daughter she gave
up for adoption in 1997. On Monday, she drove to Rosie's New York home to pick up
Chelsea, who she had been keeping in touch with via social media and text
messaging all year.
A representative for Rosie O'Donnell told the
Daily News, "Chelsea made a decision when she turned 18 that she wanted to
go to her birth mother. This was her choice."
Rosie's confidence in her daughter's decisions
seem to have dramatically changed since she publicly called her daughter mentally
ill earlier this month, shortly after she reported her daughter missing.
Chelsea was found hours later in the New
Jersey home of 25-year-old Steven Sheerer, a man who was later arrested for
sending the teen a naked photo of himself.
