Quigley had gone missing after she was last seen boarding a bus out of Port Authority around 1a.m. on Sunday morning. Her phone was later recovered in a bridal shop in the Manhattan neighborhood of Chelsea. As authorities tried to locate Quigley, both Rihanna and Missy Elliot made desperate pleas on social media for people to be on the lookout for the former backup dancer.
On Tuesday, North Bergen police announced via their Instagram that they had located Quigley alive and safe.
After an extensive search by North Bergen Police Department Detectives in cooperation with the NYPD, we have located SHIRLENE QUIGLEY.
She is safe and at a medical facility which location is undisclosed at this time. North Bergen Police Detectives have contacted her father and he is in route from Los Angeles to reunite with his daughter.
We are very pleased with this outcome. We want to thank the New York City Police Department for their tremendous amount of cooperation in this matter.
