The Umbrella singer launched a social media plea to fans to help find her missing friend.

Shirlene Quigley, a former backup dancer for Beyonce and Rihanna who was reported missing on Monday (24Oct16), has been found.

Sources tell TMZ she showed up in New Jersey and is currently under doctors' care in hospital.

Shirlene was reported missing after friends and family became concerned when they couldn't locate her, and police officials found her car outside a Hertz facility in New Jersey and her phone was found at a bridal store in Manhattan.

Rihanna joined those urging people to help find the missing dancer. She posted an emotional plea on Instagram on Monday night (24Oct16).

The Umbrella singer, who counts Quigley among her close friends, shared a video of Quigley and wrote: "This beautiful soul, and former dancer of mine is MISSING!!! 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."

Missy Elliott also used her social media to encourage her fans to get involved in the hunt for Quigley, writing: "URGENT Message*** PLEASE If anyone has seen or heard from Shirlene Quigley @shirlenequigley please contact the North Bergen police...
