Nick Stahl, who has been missing since May 9, sent an email to friends yesterday, indicating he would enter a 30-day treatment program.
According to ABCNews.com, Stahl's wife, Rose, said, "I'm relieved." She also told People Magazine that she was skeptical he is really in rehab. She said that Nick sent friends an "unemotional and unapologetic" email around 10pm, last night, telling them "he's OK," and that we would be entering a month-long rehabilitation program. He planned to make arrangements to pick up some of his clothes.
Early this morning, his wife tweeted, "I cannot thank you all enough for the love and support. So I will share that there is a new solid lead that Nick is possibly ok…" Rose was not one of the recipients of her husband's email, but she was able to access his account because she knows the login and password. The email did not indicate whether Stahl was using drugs on Skid Row, as Rose suspected. It also did not give a reason for his disappearance.
A spokesman from the Los Angeles Police Department claimed it has not received any updates from the Missing Persons Unit, and they do not seem to be closing the case for missing Nick Stahl. One source claimed his file would remain open because the email is not sufficient evidence to close it.
