Donal Logue’s 16-year-old daughter Jade has been located and returned to her Brooklyn, NY home after being missing for two weeks.
Logue’s daughter went missing on June 26. She had last been seen at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn. Her actor father, whose parents are from County Kerry, and her mother took to social media in a two-week long public campaign for her safe return.
A spokesperson for Logue told People Magazine, “Jade is now safely back home with her family. Donal is incredibly thankful for everyone’s support, and especially to the NYPD and FBI for her safe return."
The New York Police Department confirmed that Jade had been located on Saturday. TMZ reported that Jade was found “in North Carolina at a friend's house. A joint NYPD-FBI investigation led to her discovery."
Thank you ALL for the love and support. We are good. Kasey and I wish to thank the NYPD. FBI, @MissingKids and countless others.— donal logue (@donallogue) July 8, 2017
During the period the teen was missing Logue released a statement on Facebook and Twitter which led people to believe that this was not just a teen runaway and that others were involved.
Logue said, “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... Just drop her off. Let her get back in touch with her mother, Kasey, or me—we'll take her back, with hugs and no questions asked."
The actor and his ex-wife have not divulged any information regarding the circumstances that surround the teen’s disappearance but have simply confirmed that Jade is home – safe and sound.

He told IrishCentral, "I’m very Irish in many ways.
