Leah Remini’s missing person report on Shelly Miscavige was closed within hours of being opened by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). According to TMZ and The Wrap, the cops were able to meet the wife of Scientology leader David Miscavige within hours of receiving the complaint.
According to TMZ, LAPD said that the missing report filed by King Of Queens actress Leah Remini was simply unfounded.
TMZ also noted that the police didn’t speak out on whether or not Shelly Miscavige was being held against her will. True, but maybe they didn’t have to.
I don’t know if you fine folks do it differently out there in California. But most of the time, if police think a person is being held captive, they’re moved to do something about it.
According to the Wrap, LAPD has now closed the Shelly Miscavige missing persons case.
The latest Scientology drama started when Leah Remini filed the report with LAPD on Wednesday. By Thursday, all the world knew that Remini was at least one of the people who claimed that Shelly Miscavige had gone missing.

But the short version is that Shelly Miscavige moved to the private compound of the Church of Spiritual Technology near Lake Arrowhead sometime in 2005 or 2006.
Some people claim that she hasn’t been seen in public since 2007.
But the Church of Scientology said that she was a private person who continues to work for the Church behind the scenes.
But if Leah Remini was that worried about Shelly Miscavige, you have to wonder why she waited so long. Multiple reports including an E! Online summary said that Remini got suspicious when Miscavige didn’t attend the Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes wedding in 2006.
Hello? That was seven year ago. TomKat have long since split up and gone their separate ways.
And Remini is still pondering who did or didn’t attend the wedding?
Few people outside Scientology sympathize with the unpopular Church. But it does appear as if Leah Remini’s missing persons report was less about Shelly Miscavige’s safety — and more about Leah Remini’s upcoming book.
