Actress Leah Remini Files Missing Person Report for Wife of Scientology Leader
Actress Leah Remini, who recently left the Church of Scientology, has filed a missing person report with Los Angeles police for the wife of Scientology leader David Miscavige, a source close to the actress said on Thursday.
The whereabouts of Shelly Miscavige have been a focus of church critics, who claim she has not appeared in public in six years.
Los Angeles police said they received a missing person report on Shelly Miscavige, but would not say if Remini was behind it or when the report was filed.
Remini’s actions could pose a challenge to the church, which relies heavily on its celebrity members for visibility. Tom Cruise and John Travolta are among the most well-known members and only a handful of celebrities have left.
Remini, 43, who is best known for her role in the CBS comedy “The King of Queens,” recently left the church after coming under special scrutiny after she asked about the whereabouts of Miscavige’s wife, the New York Post newspaper reported.
