'Frail and thin Shelly Miscavige has been spotted twice near Scientology compound' after not being seen publicly for nearly 10 years

Daily Mail, UK/December 16, 2016

The wife of Scientology leader David Miscavige has reportedly been spotted twice in public looking 'thin', 'frail', and 'almost like she was homeless' after she has not been seen publicly for nearly a decade.

Shelly Miscavige was spotted twice in the past year in a small town near the Church of Spiritual Technology (CST), journalist and Scientology expert Tony Ortega claimed on his website Thursday in which several media sites reported. 

An anonymous source claims to have spotted a woman who closely resembles Shelly in Crestline, California near the CST headquarters. 

The source told Ortega that they first saw the woman in December 2015 walk into the Lake Drive Hardware store, which is just blocks away from Lake Gregory.

'She was a thin, smaller woman, escorted by two men,' the insider claimed. 'Disheveled. Almost like a drug addict, or like she was homeless.'

The source also reportedly told Oretga that woman who resembled Shelly looked 'frail' and that 'it was awkward'.

'My attention was never on (the men). My attention was on her,' the source continued.

'This was what I do for a living. And I had a thought that this woman was not supposed to be there. It was disturbing.'

The source tried to take photos at the CST compound, but 'a truck emerged from behind a fence, and began following them as they made their way back to town,' Ortega reported.

The second possible sighting of the Church leader's wife happened in April, where the same source told Ortega that she spotted the same woman at Goodwin & Sons Market which is near the hardware store.

The source claims the same woman who appeared to look strikingly like Shelly was escorted by two younger men.

Shelly made national headlines when her friend and former Scientology member Leah Remini filed a missing persons report in 2013.

After Remini filed the report, Shelly did speak with members of the Los Angeles Police Department and say she was fine and not being held against her will by the Church.

Remini's actions were slammed by the church at the time as 'ludicrous self-promotion', as the Los Angeles Police Department announced the report was 'unfounded.' 

It is unclear why Shelly has not been seen in public since 2007. 

In May, a never-before-seen photo released by the father of David Miscavige shows the controversial Scientology leader posing with his family - including his wife Shelly.

Ron Miscavige appeared on Good Morning America to promote his book about the Church, Ruthless, and shared a family photo with his wife, children and grandchildren from when they were all still members of Scientology.

Since that time Ron and his wife have left the Church, as has his oldest son Ron Miscavige Jr. and his family.

Everyone else remains in Scientology including Shelly, who married David in 1982.

Four years later, he became Chairman of the Board of the Religious Technology Center after the death of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.
