Los Angeles - Rihanna's missing backup dancer has been found safe.

The singer issued a plea for fans to help find Shirlene Quigley, who had last been seen getting on a bus at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York City in the early hours of Sunday morning, and the dancer was found by police on Tuesday.

A post on the Facebook page of the North Bergen Police Department stated: "After an extensive search by North Bergen Police Department Detectives in cooperation with the NYPD, we have located the SHIRLENE QUIGLEY.

"She is safe and at a medical facility whose location is undisclosed at this time. North Bergen Police Detectives have contacted her father and he is en route from Los Angeles to reunite with his daughter.

"We are very pleased with this outcome. We want to thank the New York City Police Department for their tremendous amount of cooperation in this matter."

Rihanna, 28, had previously posted a video of Shirlene, 32, talking about how we should all try harder to love one another.

The Needed Me singer wasn't the only celebrity to take to social media in order to raise awareness for Shirlene - who has worked for artists such as Beyoncé, Jamie Foxx, and Mary J. Blige - as Missy Elliot also penned a touching message on the photo sharing website.
