After checking into rehab about a month ago, Nick Stahl has checked out—against the wishes of his doctor."He left a week ago," an unnamed source told E! News. "He walked out against doctors' advice. He just didn't want to be there anymore...It is very sad. He's still struggling and has yet to hit rock bottom. Everyone is extremely worried about him."

The source says the "Terminator 3" star was spotted in downtown a few days ago, but it's not clear if the source meant he was back on Skid Row. When Stahl dropped off the radar last month, his estranged wife Rose Murphy was worried that he was back on Skid Row. After scaring everyone with his disappearance, he emailed his friends saying he didn't want them to worry. His friends were skeptical at the time that he was on the right track.

It's not clear where Stahl is right now, but Murphy didn't return any calls for comment.
