Leah Remini has filed a missing person’s report for Shelly Miscavige, the wife of Scientology leader David Miscavige.
Remini filed the report with the Los Angeles Police Department Wednesday, according to former Village Voice editor Tony Ortega. The Church of Scientology’s Gold Base headquarters are located in an unincorporated area of Riverside County, California, north of Hemet.
“Our missing persons unit informed us that Leah Remini did file a missing person report on a Shelly Miscavige,” a spokesperson for the LAPD said. “That is all we are going to say at this time.”
According to Ortega, Shelly Miscavige was transferred from the International Base to a secret compound near Lake Arrowhead in late 2005 or early 2006. The compound serves as the headquarters for the Church of Spiritual Technology and houses only a dozen Scientologists. Miscavige hasn’t been seen since 2007, but she has supposedly been at the compound for the past six years.
Remini left Scientology last month after disagreements with David Miscavige. She questioned several church policies, including those pertaining to excommunication, and was subjected to “thought modification.” When she asked why Shelly Miscavige wasn’t at Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ 2006 wedding, Tommy Davis, the head of the Scientology Celebrity Center, told her, “You don’t have the f***ing rank to ask about Shelly.” Miscavige reportedly introduced the two following Cruise’s split from Penelope Cruz.
In a statement to RadarOnline, the Church of Scientology said, “Mrs. Miscavige is a private person and her affairs are a private matter. She continues to work in the Church as she always has.”
Leah Remini opened up about her departure from Scientology at the 15th annual DesignCare event in Malibu on July 27.
“I believe that people should be able to question things. I believe that people should value family, and value friendships, and hold those things sacrosanct,” Remini said. “That for me, that’s what I’m about. It wouldn’t matter what it was, simply because no one is going to tell me how I need to think, no one is going to tell me who I can, and cannot, talk to.”
