Tom Cruise’s mother, Mary Lee South, hasn’t been spotted since April — and sources speculate the Church of Scientology may know what’s up.
Radar Online reports that rumors have circulated suggesting the 78-year-old — who was allegedly last seen at an Easter brunch at the church’s LA headquarters — may have secretly passed away.

According to Radar, public records suggest she was moved to an assisted living community a mile from the Scientology building last November — but her apartment in the community allegedly remains empty, leading some to speculate she may have died.
Though, Radar notes, no death certificate has been made public.
Similarities have been drawn to the disappearance of Shelley Miscavige, wife of Scientology leader David Miscavige.
The 54-year-old was last seen in public in 2007, and her whereabouts remain unknown.
