Beyonce's Dancer Leaves Odd Message, Disappears
Shirlene Quigley   (

A professional dancer who's busted moves with Beyonce and Rihanna is missing after making an odd comment to a friend. According to her landlord, Shirlene Quigley, 32, seemed unwell while leaving her New Jersey home around 3pm Saturday, reports NBC New York. She was last seen boarding a bus at Manhattan's Port Authority around 1am Sunday wearing a pink shirt, jeans, and heels, per Her father, who lives in California, hasn't heard from Quigley since, though she usually calls him every day. Oddly, he says Quigley left a message with a friend and colleague that said, "Get ready, it's about to happen and I'm going to need you to sub for me." It isn't clear what the message means.

Her car was found at a NYC dance studio where she works as an instructor. Her phone was found at a bridal store where she might have picked up something for a performance, her father says. "I just want her to come home, or if someone has her to let her be," he adds, noting his daughter is deeply religious and was "euphoric" as of late. "She's everything to me. She's why I live." Quigley—who has also performed with Chris Brown and Missy Elliot and on award shows, America's Got Talent, and Saturday Night Live, per Billboard—is described as 5 feet 10 inches and 150 pounds, with curly black hair and brown eyes. Police say she may be disoriented and in need of medical help, reports PIX 11. (More missing person stories.)
