Almost 12 years ago, Shelly Miscavige vanished. Here's why we keep asking about her. - 2017-07-13
Almost 12 years ago now, Scientology leader David Miscavige made his wife Shelly disappear.
In late August or early September 2005, Shelly vanished from Scientology's secretive "Int Base" near Hemet, California, a place she had helped her husband run as a hard-as-nails Scientology "Sea Org" official in her own right.
We've written numerous times about the events that led up to her disappearance, that Miscavige blew his stack, for example, when he found out that Shelly had filled some job openings while he spent some time away from the base in Los Angeles. Mike Rinder told us that Shelly was also concerned about whether her husband was still wearing his wedding ring. It was obvious to him, he told us, that Shelly was very concerned about the state of her marriage.
