Shelly Miscavige Missing Persons Case Closed; Scientology Rep RIPS Leah Remini

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The LAPD has closed its investigation regarding Shelly Miscaviage, the wife of Scientology leader David Miscaviage - and the church is livid with Leah Remini.

The investigation was launched after police received reports that Shelly had not been seen publicly in six years. Remini filed the missing persons report.

Officials found the missing persons allegation "unfounded," however.

Police met with Shelly Miscaviage face to face and closed the case, though it's still unclear whether she is or ever was being held against her will.

In any case, the Church of Scientology is furious with Remini.

A Church rep claims Leah, who parted ways with Scientology this summer, cooked up the allegation with help from "unemployed, anti-religious zealots."

The rep calls her actions "an inexcusable distraction."

"Sadly, rather than move on with her life and career, Ms. Remini has aligned herself with a handful of untrustworthy, lunatic tabloid sources," the rep adds.

The Church would not comment further beyond slamming the star and others who "obsessively harass the Church to advance their selfish agendas."

Leah was reportedly alarmed that Shelly hasn't been seen publicly in years, and at how she was probed by officials when asking about her whereabouts.

Remini has said she will not shut up, no matter how Scientology tries to retaliate against her actions, so we likely have not seen the last of this feud.
