Susan Boyle returned home from recording a charity record for Haiti earthquake survivors to find an intruder inside her house in Scotland, according to British reports.

The man ran out of the house in Blackburn, West Lothian, when she opened the front door Tuesday night. Boyle, 48, "was very distressed to find someone had been within her home and we are keen to speak to anyone who can assist with our investigations," a police official tells BBC News.

According to BBC News, police detained a teenager, but he was later released. Officers are now looking for anyone who might have seen a man described as white, between 15 and 16 years old, between 5'4"-5'8" tall, with a slim build. He was wearing a dark jacket and dark trousers.  

Boyle seemed in fine spirits Wednesday afternoon, smiling and giving the thumbs-up sign to well wishers outside her home. "I'm fine," she told Britain's Press Association. "It's in the hands of the police now."

Boyle shot to stardom on the back of her appearance on Britain's Got Talent last spring. Her debut album, I Dreamed a Dream, has sold more than eight million copies in less than two months.
