Shelly Miscavige -- who married David in 1982 -- has not been seen publically since 2007, sparking worry amongst ex-Scientologists like Leah Remini.

In 2013, the King of Queens actress filed a missing person's report on Shelly's behalf.

After doing a security check, Detective Gus Villanueva said, “The LAPD has classified the report as unfounded, indicating that Shelly is not missing." He did not provide an explanation or other information.

Remini later called "bulls--t" on the LAPD's investigation, telling the Daily Beast, “What matters to me is that I have not seen proof that this woman is alive, or doing well, so I can give a shit what the LAPD said as their bullshit statement that they put out, because I haven’t seen her face. I’m calling bullshit on it."

She was backed up by retired LAPD Detective Kevin Becker, who said, “I and many other detectives believe that the ‘investigation’ was VERY poorly handled and LAPD fell way short on this one.”

While Scientology has always maintained “Mrs. Miscavige has never been missing and is living her life to her choosing," non-Scientologists don't necessarily believe what the church is selling.
