A New Jersey professional dancer and teacher went missing in Manhattan early on Sunday. Shirlene Quigley has performed with musicians Beyoncé, Rihanna, Missy Elliott and Jamie Foxx.

According to North Bergen police, Quigley’s landlord saw her leave her apartment on Saturday afternoon around 3 p.m. She then drove her Mercedes into Manhattan and parked in midtown Manhattan and was reportedly seen dress shopping at The Bridal Garden on West 21st Street.

Quigley was last seen boarding a bus at Port Authority around 1 a.m. Sunday morning. She was wearing a pink jacket and three-inch heels.

Her father, Brad Quigley, found many details of her disappearance very troubling.

“What’s really odd is that, if she got married, she would so want me and her mother to be there,” Brad Quigley told the New York Post. “I don’t know what’s going on.”

Before she went missing, Quigley also had some alleged strange interactions with friends and co-workers.

When one friend sent her a question via text last week, Quigley replied, “I’m spending time with God, my father, and don’t have time to deal with this right now.”

On Thursday, she told fellow dance teachers, “You’re going to have to substitute some of my classes.”

After hearing about the dancer’s disappearance, Rihanna and Missy Elliott both posted to Twitter and Instagram pleading with their fans to help find their former dancer. 

Quigley began her career as one of Beyoncé's backup dancers in the 2003 "Crazy in Love" video. She also appeared in Rihanna’s “SOS” video.
