Stahl's estranged wife Roseann Murphy reported him missing on Monday (14May12), telling Los Angeles police she hasn't seen or heard from the fallen star since 9 May (12) and is concerned for his welfare.
But sources close to the actor have assured fans he'll show up sooner or later.
One pal tells Eonline.com, ""He does this sometimes. He'll be back,"" while another source reveals he saw Stahl carrying boxes outside his West Hollywood apartment complex the day after his wife's last sighting.
Stahl and his wife have been locked in a custody battle over their two-year-old daughter since February (12), when Roseann filed court documents to request that he only be allowed supervised visits with the tot and that he be ordered to take a drug test before seeing the child.
Los Angeles police sources have confirmed they are searching for Stahl, who played John Connor in the Terminator sequel, in Los Angeles' notorious Skid Row area after learning the actor was a frequent visitor to the rundown part of the city.
Police spokesman Richard French tells the Los Angeles Times that foul play is not suspected in Stahl's disappearance.
