Zac Efron’s Co-Star Begs for His Missing Teen Daughter to Return Home Safely
Gotham star Donal Logue 16-year-old daughter, Jade, was supposed to meet up with a friend at the Barclays center in Brooklyn, NY, on Monday afternoon, and hasn’t been seen since. The day after the child went missing, the man who played Tink Weatherbee alongside Zac Efron in Charlie St. Cloud tweeted a picture of the teen along with the note, “Missing — yesterday at 2PM Barclays Center/Fort Greene Brooklyn: my child, Jade Logue. 6’2″ 180 lime green hoodie dark green military parka.” Unfortunately, Jade is still nowhere to be found and her parents are pleading for her safe return.
Jade. we miss you and love you. please come home. If you can see this, just know I love and miss you dearly https://t.co/2s6A7OAGq6

The actor’s ex-wife, Kelley Smith, also used social media to ask for assistance in finding her daughter.

“We obviously hope she’s okay,” the actress told the Daily News. “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 okay and safe.”
Jade, who identifies as transgender, tweeted last year that she fears for her safety because of her gender identity, which is now sparking serious concern.
She wrote, “Shoutout to being trans, can’t wait to be assaulted for absolutely no reason other than existing.”
We can’t even imagine what the Logue family is going through right now and are praying for Jade’s safe and quick return.
Here are some of the actors we know and love who have played transgender characters — despite not actually identifying as transgender themselves:
Vanessa Ray — Pretty Little Liars
Pretty Little Liars fans were beyond shocked to find out that the character CeCe was not only "A," but also formerly known as Charles. And that the character — played by actress Vanessa Ray — struggled with fitting into her family amidst both her past actions and her feeling inside herself that she was meant to be a girl all along. Leading to a season finale that was both heartbreaking and eye-opening.
