actor Nick Stahl has been reported missing
since May 9, but don't expect a major police manhunt.
"Were not treating it like a crime," says LAPD Detective Carmine Sasso, who is overseeing the investigation. "We're not pounding the pavement or knocking on doors on this one, just networking."
The actor, 32, has experienced a number of personal problems. He's been separated from his wife Rose since January, and in February she filed court papers seeking child support for their 2-year-old daughter.

"Certain factors are contributing to him being missing," says Sasso. "There's really nothing mysterious about it," he adds.
