Donal Logue's Transgender Daughter Sill Missing (Photos)

Actor Donal Logue's 16-year-old daughter, Jade, has been missing since June 27.

Donal, 51, star of the popular Fox television series "Gotham," reported Jade missing to police at about 1 a.m. on the day she disappeared, reports the New York Daily News.

He said she never returned after leaving home at about 3 p.m. on June 26, when she met up with a friend at the Barclays Center in the Fort Greene neighborhood of Brooklyn.

In a since-deleted tweet which alluded to her disappearance, Donal wrote: "Kasey & I dearly miss our baby Jade, aka Arlo, any tips appreciated."

In a subsequent message that was also deleted, he tweeted: "Missing -- yesterday at 2PM Barclays Center/Fort Greene Brooklyn: my child, Jade Logue. 6’2” 180 lime green hoodie dark green military parka," reports Extra.

Jade's mother, Kasey Walker, spoke to the Daily News on June 28. "We obviously hope she’s OK," she said. "We hope she’s safe, and we’re making every attempt and effort. I can’t say anything more right now, just that we pray she’s OK and safe."

Jade is transgender, explained her father. She was born a male but identifies as female, and changed her name from Arlo on several social media sites within the past year.

When she first came out as transgender in April 2016, she sarcastically wrote: "Shoutout to being trans, can’t wait to be assaulted for absolutely no reason other than existing."

When reporters reached out to Donal on June 28 at his home in Brooklyn, he declined comment. "Sorry. I can’t talk. I’m talking with the police right now," he said.

Donal made his first big mark in Hollywood with the film, "The Tao of Steve," which garnered him a Special Jury Prize for Outstanding Performance at the Sundance Film Festival in 2000.

Among his other film credits cited by IMDb are: "Sneakers," "Gettysburg," "Blade," "Runaway Bride," "Reindeer Games," "The Million Dollar Hotel," "Comic Book Villains," "Confidence," "Just Like Heaven," and "The Groomsmen."

He also had a notable television role on "ER," the wildly popular medical drama.

Regarding the disappearance of Jade, Donal's representatives issued a statement:

The NYPD is asking for the public’s help in locating the 16-year-old who was last seen leaving home Monday afternoon on the way to Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Anyone with information in regards to this missing person is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS or for Spanish 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
