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."

I bet you this is an excuse to cancel the auction next week so they can keep the money people paid.

Here's a possibility...Tareq is desperate for money and decides to cash in on a life insurance policy he has on his wife's life. He goes to Oregon and buys a cell phone, forces her to make these two calls from the phone and then does the dirty deed. He will just wait for her body to be discovered and then cry all the way to the bank.

Dude...she's "Forever yours...faithfully." NOT! Sounds like there's a new guy finding out "She loves to laugh She loves to sing She does everything". "Don't Stop Believin" that she'll come back to you with "Open Arm" even though the "Girl Can't Help It". But Hey, even though you've gone your "Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)" just keep telling yourself "I'll Be Alright Without You", and don't think of all the "Lovin, Touchin, Squeezen" going on between her and him when the "Lights go out, in the city", otherwise you'll find out "Who's Crying Now". Seriously, just "Ask the Lonely".

The 'Sell-ah-hee's" are so pathetic! It must be downright painful to be SO addicted to celebrity wanna-be-ism when you have no money, no status, no talent. Who calls the celebrity media before you call police. They have tried all tactics used by most addicts and still have no idea how the entire world is laughing AT them not with them. To stoop to pretending (Michaele- not her real name) you have a chronic illness like MS is beyond disgusting.Media please don't give them any more publicity. That's the only way to stop these predators.
