Pop star Rihanna has made an emotional plea for information after a dancer who performed onstage with her went missing.

Shirlene Quigley, 32, was seen by her landlord leaving her North Bergen residence in New Jersey on Sunday, police said.

Another person reported seeing Ms Quigley near the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan early on the same day.

The dancer, who has also performed with Beyonce and Missy Elliot, has been reported missing by her father.

Ms Quigley's car and mobile phone have been found by New York City police.

Rihanna posted on Instagram: "This beautiful soul, and former dancer of mine is MISSING!!! My heart aches thinking of how heavy this is on all who love her!"

Missy Elliott wrote that Quigley was wearing "a pink jacket and 3-4 inch heels" when she went missing and urged people on Instagram to call police with any information on her location.

Ms Quigley's father told reporters she left a message with a friend which states, "Get ready, it's about to happen and I'm going to need you to sub for me."

In the video also posted by Rihanna, Ms Quigley speaks about treating each other as family.

"Imagine if we treated each other like we all really came from the same family," Ms Quigley says.

"I know people probably think I'm crazy because I'm always telling everyone 'I love you! I love you!' Because the minute that I meet somebody I do love them because I know in my heart and in my spirit that that's my brother and my sister, that's my neighbour."
