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

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

Sweeney says 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 haven't commented.
