I would tell her when she talks to her Daddy next time. Ask him. That you do not know why he didn't come pick her up. You do not need to make up excuses for him.

I would just tell her something like "I am sorry it didn't work this time things happen, your daddy loves and misses you so much -should we go color a picture for him and send it/ should we go shopping/ go visit friends ? ........" Comfort her and help her to feel secure and loved. She might feel comfort drawing dad a picture or doing something for him. It sounds weird, but it is therapeutic and helps her to "feel" close. You are teaching her coping skills. She is still young enough to redirect.
