As Los Angeles police continued to look for Nick Stahl, the actor who played John Connor in "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines," authorities said they didn't believe foul play was involved.

Stahl had been frequenting skid row, and LAPD officials said officers who work the downtown beat have been given copies of his photo and told keep an eye out for him.

LAPD officials said officers thought they had a possible sighting on Wednesday but that turned out to be a false report.

Stahl's wife, Rose Murphy, reported him missing shortly after 10 a.m. Monday to Hollywood Division officers, spokesman Richard French said. Foul play is not suspected at this time, he said.

She said the last time she saw him was May 9.

Murphy filed court papers in February, saying that the couple had been separated since January. She asked that Stahl's visitations with their daughter, Marlo, 2, be limited. She also asked for proof he hadn't used drugs within 24 hours before seeing her, KTLA-TV reported.

The director who worked with Stahl on the movie "388 Arletta Avenue" told People magazine that the actor showed no signs of being in trouble.

"He was fantastic -- not a single problem," director Randall Cole told the magazine  "He was a total professional and knew his lines. There was no diva behavior at all."
