Scientology Leader's Wife

Cops Find Her

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?

When family& close friends can't check on a person's wellbeing, then something is probably wrong. Jim Jones kept members isolated against their will, and look @ what happened with Jonestown:Our only U.S. Congressman to ever be assassinated, LEO RYAN, because he couldn't be bribed), checking similar concerns. If friends didn't confirm the I.D., then how can the public trust the gov't isn't being bought off or infiltrated? This tax-dodge "religion" is known for it's distain for "outside influencers"-WHY??

It seems premature for police to call this case unfounded . With Elizabeth Smart, Jaycee Dugard, Amanda Berry's cases something was amiss but police failed to investigate further & dropped the ball.

They are probably keeping her as a hostage, because she's the wife of a church leader, and I would bet money that she has doubts about Scientology... and they are trying to prevent her from communicating that to the outside world.

Police really should have had her mental state evaluated.

Unfounded? Doubt it. Thank goodness Leah Remini has come to her senses. What a bizarre story, but obviously something sinister is going on behind closed doors.

So David couldn't tell where Shelly was for six years until Leah made a formal police complaint? And now all of a sudden she appears to the cops? Fishy, I say, really, really fishy. I still want her to appear in public or else, she, in my opinion is still AWOL

I'm glad Leah has the cojones to speak up. The LAPD is not known for their honesty....makes me wonder if they are members and are in cahoots with Scientology and covering up......

Shelly isn't going to say she's their against get will with those crazy people surrounding her. I totally doubt she's free to do anything.
