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?
