Tareq Salahi to Police:

MY WIFE'S BEEN KIDNAPPED

"Real Housewives of D.C." star Tareq Salahi believes his wife Michaele Salahi was abducted in Virginia yesterday ... but he's afraid the cops aren't taking the situation seriously ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ just spoke with Tareq ... who tells us he last saw Michaele at their home around 11 AM ET yesterday ... right before he left to go to their winery.  Tareq says Michaele told him she was going to get her hair done -- but she never went to the appointment ... and she's been missing ever since.

Tareq claims he got a phone call from Michaele late last night ... from an unfamiliar Oregon cell phone number ... and she told him she was going to her mother's house, located minutes away from the Salahi home. 

Tareq says he was suspicious -- so he called Michaele's mother ... who told him she hadn't spoken with Michaele and was unaware of her plans.  That's when Tareq -- fearing Michaele had been abducted -- called the Warren County Sheriff's Dept. for help.

But Tareq claims deputies told him she had already called them -- informing them she was OK and just dealing with some "family issues."

Tareq tells TMZ ... he believes Michaele had been FORCED to make the phone calls by her abductor ... and believes she is in very real danger ... especially because the Salahis have received death threats in the past.

Tareq says he's considering going to other law enforcement for help because he feels the Warren County Sheriffs are not taking proper action. A rep for the WCSD tells TMZ cops are not releasing any info about the situation at this time.

Tareq has issued a statement saying, "We are reaching to the public pleaing [sic] desperately for your help."

He continues, "It is our belief as of last night, that Michaele Salahi may have been kidnapped or abducted and being held under duress and forced to tell persons, including authorities she is okay."

"We are asking the public to please be on the look out for her, and if found please contact the authorities and please approach her and contact the authorities to intervene and that she may be forced to say she is okay, when in fact she is not and being held under possible abduction.

The Salahi family can be reached at 540-635-9933."

The police should of course err on the side of caution and determine if she's missing or if this is a false report. If it's a hoax, then they should of course be prosecuted. We don't need another Bravo-ite hurt or dead.

Maybe she was abducted by aliens and is being artificially inseminated, which would work out well in their quest for a child.

TMZ Is Destined To Be The Next News of The World    

This is so sad and crazy. I hope she's alright. The sad thing is bc of the White House crashing incident and the reality show, ppl will think this is some type of publicity stunt. I don't think it is. I hope it's not.

Wonder if it has anything to do with this;

A court-ordered auction of equipment and wine belonging to Oasis Winery, a Hume business of noted White House party crashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi, is scheduled Sunday.

Guess I should've included this part;

The couple lived on Scenic Overlook Drive, just west of Linden, at the time, but it is unclear if they still do. The Oasis property itself is not a part of the auction, and the "Salahis plan to have a grand reopening on Sept. 24", according to www.oasiswine.com.

To Tareq,
nobody wants to kidnap your wife, you attention media seeking whore.... nobody wants to watch you or your skank wife... go drink your wine in your cellar and leave the world alone...

hmmm no none really cares that a money grubbing media seeking whore is missing..... hard to believe that. and that nobody is taking it "seriously"...wow, never saw that coming........ only thing that would make this story believable is that The Kardashian Klan "took" her..... as a big joke. and didnt mean any harm by it..... to get more publicity for all of them..... sad human beings, and wastes of all of our time and oxygen.
