Canadian sports anchor Dan O'Toole said his 1-month-old daughter Oakland has been found safe, hours after he revealed she was missing.

On Thursday, the television personality, 44, posted a black-and-white snapshot of his newborn on Instagram, writing in the caption that he was "praying that whoever has you, is holding you. That whoever has taken you from me, is protecting you. That however has you, let’s you come back into my arms."

O'Toole — who is also dad to daughters Ruby and Sydney — has since updated the caption, writing that Oakland has been found "safe," though he still hadn't been reunited with her yet.

"My baby Oakland has been confirmed to be safe. I have still not seen her or held her," he wrote. "To those that decided to bash me during this ordeal, tell me this: have you ever looked in the eyes of your kids, and not been able to tell them where their sister is or when they will see her again?"

"We are still broken," added O'Toole. "We may never be fixed again."

"Meet Oakland Eleanor Sandra Newman-O’Toole," he added. "My brand new lil girl who has a million names, and all of my heart. In case it was ever in doubt, now officially NEVER forgetting 2020."
