Michele Diane "Shelly" Miscavige (born January 18, 1961) is married to Church of Scientology leader David Miscavige. She has made no public appearances since August 2007. This has become the source of speculation concerning how Scientology treats its members. The Church of Scientology denies that she is missing and states that she is working for the church out of the public eye, though it has declined to reveal her present location. A 2013 missing persons report filed at least two separate times was closed and classified as 'unfounded' by the LAPD, but no information was made public in regard to her location or reason for disappearing from public view. A detective associated with the LAPD claims that detectives have met with the Miscaviges and seen Shelly in person.
