A backup dancer for stars such as Rihanna, Beyonce and Missy Elliott who had gone missing, has been located.

Shirlene Quigley is safe and being treated at an undisclosed medical facility, according to North Bergen, New Jersey police.

Quigley was reported missing over the weekend.

The dancer’s father, Brad Quigley, who lives in California, told CNN it was unusual for his daughter not to be in contact with him.

“We talked every day so it was absolutely strange that I did not hear from her,” he said. “She is a very over the top happy person.”

On Monday, Rihanna posted a video of Quigley asking for the public’s help in locating her.

“This beautiful soul, and former dancer of mine is MISSING,” the singer wrote. “My heart aches thinking of how heavy this is on all who love her!”

Others including Elliott also turned to social media to solicit prayers and help.

According to her website, Shirlene Quigley broke into professional dancing at age 18 when she danced in Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love” music video.

She has appeared in music videos for other high-profile artists including Chris Brown and Mary J. Blige, as well as danced on tour and during awards show performances.

Police said Quigley’s father is traveling to be by her side.
