ROSIE O'Donnell's daughter reportedly received a "nude photo" from the man arrested in connection with her recent disappearance.

Steven Sheerer, who was arrested shortly after Chelsea O'Donnell was found safe in New Jersey last Tuesday after her mother revealed she had been missing for a week, is said to have knowingly distributed at least one "nude photo over the internet."

Law enforcement sources told gossip website that they found the evidence of pornographic imagery on Chelsea's phone, but it is currently unclear when she received it.

Sheerer, 25, faces charges of child endangerment and distribution of obscenity to a minor, and if convicted he could serve up to 10 years in prison.

He is currently being held on $40,000 bail.

A source close to former 'The View' co-host Rosie, 53, previously admitted she was "extremely concerned" about Chelsea, who is battling mental illness and stopped taking her medication before she went missing, after she was found in the company of the alleged heroin addict, who initially denied she was with him.

The mother and daughter enjoyed a peaceful reunion last Wednesday after police located Chelsea approximately 130 miles from their home in New York by tracking a signal from her mobile phone just hours after Rosie issued a public appeal for any information on her whereabouts.
