Scientology Leader's Wife

Cops Find Her

Exclusive Details

0808_scientology_logo_article_2
The LAPD has CLOSED its missing persons investigation involving the wife of Scientology leader David Miscavige ... because cops had a face-to-face meeting with her ... TMZ has learned.

The investigation was launched after LAPD detectives received reports that Shelly Miscavige had not been seen publicly in 6 years.  As we previously reported, one of the people who contacted cops was actress Leah Remini.

Law enforcement tells TMZ they have determined the missing persons allegation is "unfounded."

One question we asked that we could not get answered ... Did cops determine Shelly was or was not being held against her will?

Glad she's still alive but it'll be interesting to see what happens next. She might've been held against her will or she could be so terrorized or brainwashed that she tells the cops she's happy to stay where she is.

I would say something about that cult. But I'm too afraid of their lawyers.

Wasn't Elizabeth Smart also 'found' before when a cop interrogated them and she was so brainwashed, that she didn't say that she was held against her will

This is more bizarre than ever. Why would she hide out for almost 7 years--it makes no sense. Why would Miscavige not just tell people where his wife is, if there is no problem? Why are people not allowed to ask where she is? Creepy, scary cult.

I wouldn't be surprised if she was held against her will. A family friend had to be kidnapped from his group of Scientologist's here in Mpls. They brainwashed him just like the celebrities, he used up all of his savings, and separated himself from his wife. It completely ruined his life, up until she had had enough and kidnapped him. They had to bring him to get deprogrammed just like any other cult. It was extremely dangerous and scary for their family, but they did what they had to to save him. It has been about 20 years now, and after his intervention he finally saw the light. I actually feel really bad for Tom Cruise's children. That is the most cruel thing a person could do- keep their children from the other parent especially in the name of religion. Nicole Kidman didn't have a prayer.

I've been studying this cult for 7 years. This is just one of many who are trapped inside. They also have a trailer on their compound in Hemet where former executives of the "church" have been held for years under armed guard. They also have a work camp called the Rehabilitation Project Force where people are forced to run from place to place and do hard labor for 20 hours a day like break rocks. They are put there by Miscavige for the slightest things like asking questions or hesitating too long to do something.

David Miscavige's father and niece have left as well. Miscavige rules with an iron fist - literally. He has physically punched, kicked and choked people to put them in line.

There is some dark and very illegal stuff going on there.

I wouldn't be surprised if that wasn't even the real Shelly. How do cops know the person they talked to wasn't just an impostor?

and how sure was it that it was really her? Are her sisters members as well? I'm sure there are some other members that look like her. So, I'm not convinced that she's fine
