According to police, Rosie O’Donnell’s missing 17-year-old daughter, Chelsea, was finally located on Tuesday at the Barnegat, New Jersey home of 25-year-old Steve Sheerer, a convicted criminal she met on Tinder.
On Wednesday, Rosie O’Donnell began tweeting about Sheerer’s history of criminal charges, which stem from a traffic stop following a two-month narcotics investigation in 2012. ET reports that Sheerer was later convicted of child endangerment and put on probation for heroin possession.

A spokesman for the Ocean County Police Department tells PEOPLE the precinct received a call around 6 p.m. Tuesday night and triangulated the location of Chelsea’s cell phone to the house of Steven Sheerer, whom O’Donnell would name Wednesday on social media.
Upon talking to Sheerer, the officer “knew something was up. He could tell something was off with Sheerer. His behavioral cues were off. He could tell he was hiding something and was nervous,” police tell PEOPLE.
When the officer entered the house and his search reached the attic, he found Chelsea: “She was hiding up there,” confirms the OCPD spokesman.
