Friends of Canadian-born, New York-based actor #Donal Logue have joined the public effort to find his teenage daughter, who has been missing for more than a week. Jade Logue was last seen near the Barclay Center in Brooklyn on June 26, where she had reportedly gone to meet a friend. She had left her family's home in the Clinton Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn earlier that afternoon. On Monday, June 3, "Machete" star #Danny Trejo posted a 30-second video to his official Twitter account, directed at the person or persons responsible for Jade's disappearance.

Trejo: "She'll find her way home"

Trejo, who starred with Logue in the film "Reindeer Games," as well as the FX series "Sons of Anarchy," appears somber throughout the short video and offers simple directions for those who may know where Jade is.

“Whoever has Jade, I want to plead with you, please just drop her off anywhere. She’ll find her way home,” he says in the clip.

Logue and his ex-wife Kasey Smith have filed a missing person's claim with the NYPD and they are said to be investigating the case. Last week, Logue's Hollywood representative issued a statement asking the public to contact the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline with any information related to the missing teen.

Father concerned about "predators"

Logue has been incredibly active on social media since the disappearance of his daughter, posting messages from those within the industry who are assisting in the search efforts, are well as sharing personal stories about his missing child.

In a heartfelt Facebook entry on July 1, he mentioned the "dogged teams from the NYPD, FBI, and others" involved in the search to find Jade, but also revealed concerning information regarding her disappearance.

Jade has been in the process of transitioning from male to female and has been erroneously referred to in a number of news sources by her current legal name. Her birth name and photos from her previous life as a male have also been used in missing person's documents, which may complicate search efforts.

It has been widely documented that increased rates of bullying, both online and in-person, may lead #LGBT youth to have a more difficult home life than their classmates and PFLAG NYC estimates that at least 50% of homeless youth and runaways in the city are from the LGBT community. In a video posted by Jade's mother, Kasey Smith, the issue of identity is addressed head-on by saying the missing child is the real story, not her sexuality or orientation.
