Actress Leah Remini, who recently left the Church of Scientology, filed a missing person's report with the Los Angeles Police Department for Scientology leader David Miscavige's wife, Shelly Miscavige, reports Tony Ortega and RadarOnline.
The Daily News reports that a police source says detectives met with Miscavige in person and that the report is "completed and classified as unfounded." LAPD Officer Gregory Baek tells Tony Ortega the same thing - police now consider the case closed.
Ortega, former Village Voice editor and longtime reporter and critic of Scientology, says Remini made the filing on Wednesday for Miscavige, who has not been seen in public in six years.
Remini's recent break from the church is said to have stemmed from her inquiry into Shelly Miscavige's whereabouts at Tom Cruise's 2006 wedding. Leah and Shelly were friends.
In her statement at the time of her exit earlier this month Remini said, "I believe that people should be able to question things," she said. "I believe that people should value family, and value friendships, and hold those things sacrosanct. 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."
Ortega says Shelly Miscavige might be living at a private Scientology compound outside Los Angeles and has been cut off from the outside world.
The Church has previously stated that Shelly Miscavige is not missing, but simply doing church work.
