CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago police have advised officers to be on the lookout for Irish singer-songwriter Sinead O’Connor after receiving a report she threatened to jump from a bridge.

Police spokesman Officer Thomas Sweeney said Thursday there isn’t an active police search for O’Connor. He said Irish authorities reported O’Connor contacted her family, saying she was suicidal.

Sweeney said officers spotted someone threatening to jump from a bridge over a Chicago expressway, but it turned out to be a 54-year-old man. He was taken to a hospital.

Last month, suburban Chicago police put out a well-being check for O’Connor after she reportedly went on a bike ride Sunday morning and didn’t return. She was later found safe at a hotel.

Her representatives didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

    Why would they advise officers here in West Michigan to be on alert for her? Do they have information indicating that she was headed this way?
