News of the missing person report regarding Shelly Miscavige -- a former friend of Remini's -- was reported by The Atlantic Wire.

In a statement to ET, lawyers representing Shelly Miscavige denied that she is missing. "Mrs. Miscavige has been working non-stop in the Church, as she always has. She is not a public figure and prefers her privacy," said the statement, which is signed by Jeffrey K. Riffer from the legal firm Elkins Kalt Weintraub Reuben Gartside LLP.

"Mrs. Miscavige has been seen and heard of since 2007. Any rumors to the contrary are false. Any person making such a false assertion is doing so recklessly because they do not know the facts or are lying because they wish ill for the Church, Mr. Miscavige and Mrs. Miscavige," the statement added.
