Actor Nick Stahl, who may be best known for his role as John Connor in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, is missing. Stahl's wife, Rose Murphy, filed a missing person report with the Los Angeles Police Department Monday, according to TMZ.Stahl, 32, was last seen May 9.

The actor, who also appeared on the series Carnivale and is listed as being involved in the pre-production stages of the Val Kilmer film The Unknown Son, could be in some trouble. Reportedly, in February, Stahl's wife filed court documents indicating she had "serious concerns that Nick may be using drugs."

Currently, per TMZ, the fear is that Stahl has been spending a lot of time on Skid Row in Los Angeles, and he may have gotten deeper into drug use.

"Stahl married Murphy in June 2009; the couple was photographed bringing their newborn baby to a dinner in Los Angeles in June 2010," adds Huffington Post. That baby is their daughter, Marlo. The court papers filed earlier indicate that Murphy and Stahl were no longer living together, and that Murphy was afraid her husband's drug use would affect his parenting.

"According to the docs, [Rose Murphy] is willing to let Nick see their 2-year-old only while under the supervision of a professional visitation monitor ... 'without Nicolas having used drugs in the past 24 hours,'" TMZ reported at the time.

TMZ notes that Stahl's rep declined to comment on the matter of the actor being missing.
