06221_nick_stahl_gettyNick Stahl's wife has decided to end the search for the missing "Terminator 3" star ... after he disappeared from friends and family for the 2nd time in two months.

Stahl -- who was MIA for a couple of weeks in May -- vanished again last week after checking out of an L.A. rehab facility against the advice of his doctors.

This is sad. Addiction is a terrible thing. No matter who you are, what your social or economical background, drugs kill. He is pretty low right now, I hope he hits bottom soon, and that bottom is not in a casket.

Another instance where the so-called "sober" person is crazier than the addict. The "loving" thing for her to do is get away some therapy to remove herself from the toxic situation she helped create. It's called "good parenting."

An addict will always know where home is... a drug dealers home that is.

I swear his crazy wife murdered him last month when she claimed he was missing and has been attempting to cover it up ever since!

I have been a huge fan of nick's for a very long time, very talented young man and it's so sad this is happening. However i do believe his Wife Rose is in the right. She and her daughter must do what is best for her, and she is doing the right thing. You cannot help someone who doesnt want it. As much as we would all love to see nick get himself together for himself and his family he has to want it. We all need to say our prayers for Rose, his daughter and him, and just realize we are not her and dont know the situation except from the other side of the silver screen. Only they know their situation, i just pray he comes home to his wife and he wants true help!

I think she needs to seriously think about divorcing him. Since they have a daughter she needs to do what is in the child's best interest. Staying with a drug addict will set a bad example for the girl.

This is a loving wife that has gone to great lengths to save her husband from a disease. My heart goes out to her for her courage and bravery in enduring his selfish antics. Clearly she is a strong woman to stand by him and raise awareness so that he is home safe and gets the help and support he needs. I wish the people that hate on here and make comments that she only cares about money would think about what they would do if it were their loved one. May he hit his rock bottom and may she have the continued strength and love to get through this with him. They deserve a good life, one free of substance abuse. It has claimed the lives of many, and I applaud her for her tenacity in seeing to it that he knows he is loved and cared for.
