It was a shocking and tragic story that broke late last night.
TSN anchor Dan O'Toole took to social media to reveal that his one month old daughter had been abducted.
He made a public plea and hoped he could hold her again.
"My baby Oakland. I’m praying that whoever has you, is holding you. That whoever has taken you from me, is protecting you. That however (sic) has you, let’s you come back into my arms,” the post reads. “I love you Oakland. I can’t wait to one day hold you again. My heart is broken. I am broken. To be clear, Oakland is alive, we think. But we don’t know. I have a one month old child, and I don’t know where she is.”
O'Toole along with the police later revealed that his daughter had been safe and was with her mother.
However O'Toole decided to go on a bit of rant after Travis Dhanarj Tweeted that Durham police had located the baby and she was safe.
“Hey Travis. First off, this is not a Durham police matter. Secondly, should the police maybe call me first once my child has been found?” O’Toole tweeted.
This forced the Durham Regional Police to issue an update of their own which they revealed no abduction was reported and believe it was a custody issue.
“We have looked into the social media post of a local resident/sports broadcaster regarding an alleged abduction of his baby daughter,” DRPS said.
“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.”
TSN has said they will not be commenting on the matter at all.
