"This beautiful soul, and former dancer of mine is MISSING!!! My heart aches thinking of how heavy this is on all who love her!" Rihanna captioned a video of Quigley. "If anyone has seen or has any information on @shirlenequigley's whereabouts ….. PLEASE CONTACT the North Bergen Police Department 201 392 2100!!!!"

In the video, Quigley, 32, talks about treating each other with respect. "I know people probably think I’m crazy because I’m always telling everyone ‘I love you! I love you!’ Because the minute that I meet somebody I do love them because I know in my heart and in my spirit that that’s my brother and my sister, that’s my neighbor," she says in the clip.

She adds: "If I make a connection, a relationship whether it be one minute, one year or the rest of my life, if you are in my life, I love you." Quigley posted the footage on her own Instagram account on August 25.

According to NBC, Quigley lives in North Bergen, New Jersey, and teaches dance at Peridance Capezio Center and Broadway Dance Center in Manhattan. She was last seen by her father getting on a bus at Port Authority in NYC around 1 a.m. on Sunday.

"I just want her to come home, or if someone has her to let her be," her father told the outlet. "She's everything to me. She's why I live."

Quigley has also worked with Missy Elliott and Jamie Foxx. On Monday, Elliott, 45, posted photos of the dancer on her Instagram. She wrote that Quigley was wearing a pink jacket and 3- to 4-inch heels at the time of her disappearance and claims that the police have her phone.

"Please share and help us find her!! #shirlenequigley amazing SWEET CARING SPIRIT who is LOVED by MANY!" she wrote. "I NEED YALL TO REPOST get this info out there! Please help with any information."
