New York: After she was missing for two weeks, Hollywood actor Donal Logue's daughter Jade has been found safe and sound.

The Gotham actor confirmed her safety on social media on Saturday afternoon, reports variety.com.

Donal first took to Twitter for help with locating his 16-year-old daughter, a transgender, on 27 June after she was last seen here near Brooklyn's Barclay Center.

While the actor didn't go into too much detail regarding their family reunion, he did make sure to thank the New York Police Department, the FBI and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in his message to fans. According to tmz.com, an NYPD-FBI joint task force located Jade unharmed at a friend's house in North Carolina on Saturday morning. She has since made her way home. Donal's former wife and Jade's mother Kasey Smith also confirmed her daughter's return home on Twitter.  "Beyond grateful," she wrote. It's unclear whether or not Donal's most recent tweet asking his daughter to return home was what sparked her re-emergence, or if she was simply found by authorities. On Thursday, he shared a childhood photograph of Jade, adding, "C'mon home, you sweet, beautiful soul."

Jade first went missing one week after her 16th birthday on 26 June.
