Rihanna's former backup dancer Shirlene Quigley has broken her silence after going missing and prompting several celebrities to beg fans to help find her.
On Oct. 27, she thanked North Bergen Police Department in New Jersey for bringing her home safe. She didn't reveal where she was or what happened to her.
"Thank you everyone for your prayers, love, and support... GOD is so good... special unconditional thank you to our NYPD who literally served and protected...," she captioned a photo of herself and her father with several officers. "We are so blessed beyond measure to have people like these gentleman who put their lives on the line daily to help us... I am spending time with family and will return to the dance floor Monday... words can not express the joy and gratitude my souls feels 💗 Love you all more then words 🌎🌻look forward to hug and see you all soon 💗"
The police department shared a similar photo on its social media page, saying Shirlene and her father "stopped by to thank the members of the Detective Bureau for their tireless effort and work locating her and reuniting her with family."
"I love you guys so much! Seriously you all are world changers 🌎💗," the dancer said in response to the police's photo.
For a few days, it wasn't known if this story would have a happy ending. Shirlene, who has performed with Rihanna and Beyonce, was seen on Oct. 23 at 1 o'clock in the morning but couldn't be found for a few days after. Her former boss begged her fans to help track her down.
"This beautiful soul, and former dancer of mine is MISSING!!!," Rihanna said, while sharing a video of Shirlene. "My heart aches thinking of how heavy this is on all who love her! If anyone has seen or has any information on @shirlenequigley's whereabouts .....PLEASE CONTACT the North Bergen Police Department 201 392 2100 !!!!"
Missy Elliot, whom Shirlene also worked with, shared a video of the dancer, saying "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🙏"
After Shirlene was found, Rihanna shared a photo of them together from the dancer's Instagram, saying, "God is so merciful!!! Happy you're alive and safe @shirlenequigley 🙏🙏🙏."
Missy, too, shared a photo of Shirlene, saying she'd been found.
