Last night, Rihanna and Missy Elliott took to Twitter to ask fans to help them find their missing friend.

Shirlene Quigley, a 32-year-old backup dancer who has worked with Rihanna and Beyoncé, went missing early Sunday morning. Quigley was reportedly last seen boarding a bus at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in NYC at around 1 a.m.

“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!!!!”

Missy Elliott shared a similar plea writing, “This is @shirlenequigley she’s been missing since Friday she is so loved & we pray for her safe return.. Need help from the whole Dance Community to spread the word! Those who have met her know her spirit is always bubbly and kind & uplifting energy! Sending countless prayers🙏🏾”

NBC reports Quigley’s phone was found at a bridal shop in Chelsea, where her father says she may have been picking something up for a show. Additionally, her father says Quigley recently sent a stranger text message to her friend saying, “Get ready, it’s about to happen and I’m going to need you to sub for me.”
