The LAPD issued a statement that denies Remini’s claims that they were complicit with Shelly Miscavige’s disappearance.

“In 2014, Los Angeles Police Department detectives assigned to the Missing Persons Unite (MPU) went to Shelly Miscavige’s location and personally made contact with her and her attorney,” the statement read. “Detectives found her to be alive and safe, and subsequently closed the missing person’s investigation.”

The statement made clear that retired LAPD Commander Corey Palka and the Hollywood Division had no involvement with the case. The short statement came after Remini shared a lengthy Twitter thread, raising concerns about Scientology’s connection to the LAPD and Shelly Miscavige’s disappearance.
