Leah Remini Files Missing Person Report for Scientology Leader’s Wife


Leah Remini is "going clear" in a big way.

A month after the actress broke away from the Church of Scientology, Remini has filed a missing person report in search of Shelly (Michele) Miscavige, the wife of Scientolgy leader David Miscavige.

The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to omg! Insider that a missing person's report has been filed seeking Shelly's whereabouts, but wouldn't say when the report was filed and who filed it. However, a source confirmed to omg! that Remini was indeed the one behind it.

Journalist Tony Ortega, a former editor of the Village Voice who broke the story on his blog Thursday, wrote that Shelly has not been seen in public for six years, and that he believes she is being held at a secret Scientology compound near Lake Arrowhead in San Bernardino County, California, just outside L.A.

Omg! Insider has reached out to Remini's publicist as well as the Church of Scientology for comment, but neither have responded.

However, the former "King of Queens" star, 43, has already had a lot to say about the subject. Last month, she explained just why she left the controversial group.

"I believe that people should be able to question things," she told People. "I believe that people should value family, and value friendships, and hold those things sacrosanct. That for me, that's what I'm about. It wouldn't matter what it was, simply because no one is going to tell me how I need to think, no one is going to tell me who I can, and cannot, talk to."

As Ortega reported, Remini began to question her beliefs after a tense exchange with David at the 2006 wedding of his famous follower Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. When Remini questioned why David was without his wife, who'd recently vanished, she was spurned by a church spokesman, who told her, "You don't have the f---ing rank to ask about Shelly."

Remini is reportedly planning a tell-all book about her departure.
