North Bergen police said on Facebook that the NYPD also recovered her vehicle.

After seeing her leave her apartment on Saturday afternoon, Quigley’s landlord called one of her friends and said she seemed unwell, NBC4 reported.
Quigley’s father, who lives in California, said that she recently told a friend, “Get ready, it’s about to happen and I’m going to need you to sub for me.” He said he became concerned after not hearing from his daughter, who usually calls him around 6 p.m. every day.
Quigley teaches at the Peridance Capezio Center and Broadway Dance Center in Manhattan, according to her website. She began her career at age 18 as one of the “uhh ohh girls” in Beyoncé’s “Crazy In Love” video.
After news of her disappearance broke Monday, Rihanna called Quigley a “beautiful soul” on Instagram, shared a video of the dancer and urged people to be kind to each other.
