Ryan was relieved when the stalker that was following him was admitted to a hospital for mental care in April, 2002. Darlene Bonifacio met Ryan on a Greek Island, while on vacation. Upon return to the States, she turned up at the actor's Malibu home, throwing herself into his arms. When she refused to leave, the police were called, and she left after speaking with them, promising not to return. She returned two hours later, burst into the house, and climbed into his bed. She was taken away and underwent a pyschiatric evaluation.
