Actress Leah Remini, who departed from the Church of Scientology, has filed a missing person report on the whereabouts of the wife of Scientology leader David Miscavige, Entertainment Tonight reported Thursday.

"The King of Queens" star contacted police and claimed that Shelly Miscavige has not been seen in public for over six years, a source confirmed to ET.

In response, representatives for Shelly Miscavige gave a statement to ET: "Mrs. Miscavige has been working non-stop in the Church, as she always has. She is not a public figure and prefers her privacy."

Last month, Remini recently told People magazine her reasons for leaving the church. "I believe that people should be able to question things. 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."

The actress also told Us Weekly that she was readying a memoir. "It will include my experiences, everything that's taboo to talk about," she said.
