Donal Logue’s daughter Jade is now back home safe after first being reported missing nearly two weeks ago.
The Gotham star’s rep confirmed the news on Saturday, stating she is “now safely back home with her family.”
Jade first went missing on June 26 near the family’s home in Brooklyn, prompting a police search and pleas for her return from her family.
“Donal is incredibly thankful for everyone's support, and especially to the NYPD, FBI and Team Adam NCMEC for her safe return,” the rep added.
Earlier this week, the Lancaster Police Department in Pennsylvania said there was a possible sighting of Jade reported by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children near a deli in the city, according to Fox 43 News.
Several of Donal’s Gotham co-stars tweeted support for the actor and helped signal boost awareness of Jade’s disappearance.
The actor posted this message to his Facebook account:
This is my daughter, Jade. It’s one of my favorite photos of her taken from a happier time. I love all people and have met tons, but honestly (I’m biased) there’s never been a more loving, innocent, cuddly child than Jade. I lover her and who she is and her tribe is strong (I’ve met many wonderful people through Jade), but there are some predators who swim among their ranks knowing they’re dealing with sweet, trusting souls. We want you home Jade.
Whoever knows where she is, whoever may be with her — clearly this thing has become big and crazy. The net has been flung far and wide and luckily, I have dogged teams from the NYPD, FBI and other involved. The point is, you may have had good intentions to help her, but realize that now it’s bigger than you could have ever anticipated. It’s okay. Just drop her off. Let her get back in touch with her mother, Kasey, or me — and we’ll take her back, with hugs and no questions asked. Contact us if you have any information regarding Jade’s disappearance or Detective Frank Liuzzi at 718-636-6547. There is an “out” for this situation that works for all involved. We promise.
After a few heartfelt pleas for her wellbeing and return by Donal and Jade’s mother Kasey Smith, it’s great to hear that the teen is finally confirmed to be safe and sound with her family.
