TOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP) – The owner of the home where Rosie O’Donnell’s missing teen daughter was found earlier this week has been arrested for allegedly having inappropriate online communications with the 17-year-old girl.

Police in New Jersey said Steven Sheerer faces charges of child endangerment and distribution of obscenity to a minor.

Prosecutors declined to identify the victim, citing her age. But a spokeswoman for O’Donnell said Saturday the case involves the star’s daughter, Chelsea.

Police say the 25-year-old Sheerer was arrested Friday night at his home in Barnegat. Chelsea O’Donnell had been found at the home Tuesday, hours after her mother posted a statement online saying the girl had left home on Aug. 11.

It wasn’t known Saturday if Sheerer had retained an attorney and a telephone number for him could not be located.
