Actor Donal Logue, star of the Fox series Gotham, has sent out several heartfelt pleas for the safe return of his 16-year-old daughter Jade Logue, who is transgender, and who's been missing since Monday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
On Tuesday, Logue reportedly tweeted that Jade was last seen at 2 p.m. in the Barclays Center/Fort Greene area of Brooklyn. The tweet, which for some reason has since been deleted, also included a description of her and of what she was wearing at the time of her disappearance, according to THR. But the actor, who's also starred in Law and Order: SVU, ER, and Sons of Anarchy, has reached out to his daughter and/or whoever may have her several times on Twitter and on Facebook since.
In his Facebook plea asking for Jade's safe return, Logue wrote that NYPD and the FBI were on the case, and suggested he suspected his daughter had fallen into the hands of a predator. His post read:
"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," he wrote. I love 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 others involved. The point is, you may have had good intentions to help her, but I'm sure you realize that this situation is bigger than you could've anticipated."
Jade is Logue's is one of two children Logue had with ex-wife Kasey Smith, the other is a son named Finn.
A missing person's report for Jade was filed with the NYPD on Tuesday, according to the LA Times. Representatives for the actor have asked the public for help with information leading to Jade:
