Leah Remini is allegedly still battling Scientology, and the whereabouts of the long-unseen wife of church leader David Miscavige is the sticking point.
The actress has filed a missing person’s report with the LAPD regarding Shelly Miscavige, whose vanishing indirectly led to Leah leaving the religion.
“Our missing persons unit informed us that [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.”
News of her LAPD filing was first reported by anti-Scientology journalist Tony Ortega, who also was among the first to report on her rift with the church.
Leah Remini left Scientology in part, due to blowback she allegedly received after inquiring into Shelly Miscavige’s apparent vanishing in recent years.
Ortega reports that when she inquired about her whereabouts, church spokesman Tommy Davis told her she “didn’t have the f***ing rank to ask about Shelly.”
The blog noted that the unofficial word is that Shelly has been at the church’s Lake Arrowhead compound in San Bernardino County, Calif., since 2005-06.
Neither David Miscavige (Tom Cruise’s best man in his wedding to Katie Holmes) or other officials have confirmed her presence there, or her health.
Remini’s criticism of David was also said to be a key factor in her decision to leave the controversial church, which she insists she will not be silenced by.
Scientology has not commented on the missing persons report.
