The police were alerted to her disappearance by her father, NBC New York reported. The concerned parent, who lives in California, said she always called him at 6 p.m. each evening and he got worried when she didn't get in touch on Sunday.

Quigley's cellphone was found in a bridal store in the Chelsea area of New York City, but her dad said she could have been there picking up clothes for a show.

However, he said she recently made a strange comment to a friend, saying: "Get ready, it's about to happen and I'm going to need you to sub for me."
