Dan O’Toole’s missing baby has been located and is “safe.”
According to Fox News, the host of SC with Jay and Dan on Canada’s The Sports Network (TSN) posted since-deleted tweets revealing that his daughter was “safe.”
“My baby Oakland has been found and is said to be safe. Police informed me at 12:07am. I still have not seen Oakland or held her. To those that have decided to attack me for fearing for my daughter’s safety, I don’t know what to say,” he reportedly wrote.
He continued, “I just hope that you never have to look in the eyes of your own children, and tell them that you don’t know where their sister is, or when they will ever see her again. I am still broken. I don’t know if any of us will ever be fixed. We just want our Oakland back.”
Addressing the speculation surrounding his missing daughter, he added, “A 5 week old baby. 5 weeks. A child that was supposed to be in my care. 5 weeks old. I’ve still haven’t seen a picture of her, let alone held her. Yet my character called into question? Attacked. Defamed. People ‘question’ the story? I have no words. I’m done.”
Fox News also confirmed that the infant was with her mother via the Durham Regional Police in Ontario, Canada’s official Twitter page.
“We have looked into the social media post of a local resident/sports broadcaster regarding an alleged abduction of his baby daughter. Although this was not reported to us, we can confirm the baby has been/continues to be safe with her biological mother in the Peterborough area,” the statement on social media read.
We’re happy Oakland is safe!
