Andrew Koenig, 42, has been missing for over a week. Koenig played “Boner” on the TV show, “Growing Pains”.
He was due to fly out of Vancouver last week and never made his flight. No one has seen or heard from him since. His parents report that he “may be severely depressed about something”, according to “PopEater”.
Andrew Koenig is the son of Walter Koenig who played the Original Star trek’s Chekov in both TV and movies. Chekov and his wife are very concerned about his disappearance and are searching for him along with friends and police.
Koenig was last seen on Feb. 14, two days before he missed his flight out of Vancouver. He had recently been working as a camera operator on the comedy show aired by podcast, ‘Never Not Funny.’
Andrew Koenig had been staying with a friend in Vancouver, Jenny Magenta who is a burlesque. She has posted on her Facebook page that her friend is missing and is asking for help in finding him.
Koenig’s character, “Boner” is recognized by fans of the show “Growing Pains”. Boner was Mike Seaver’s best friend on the show for four years. He was written out of the script when he joined the Marine Corp in 1989.
The last we saw of Koenig on the screen was in 2008 in “InAlienable” both written and directed by his father.
Anyone that has seen Andrew Koenig after February 14th is asked to contact Detective Raymond Payette of the Vancouver PD at 604-717-2534 See his most recent picture here: Andrew Koenig 2009
Andrew Koenig, the big brown eyed teenager on “Growing Pains”, has grown into a handsome man of 42. His parents reports that he may be “severely depressed”, bring all kinds of thoughts or theories into mind about what has happened to the former child star.
Depression is a horrendous disorder. Anyone who has ever fallen victim to its grips can attest to that. It is emotional pain and agony that puts a black cloud over your entire world. There have been no reports about Koenig being treated for clinical depression, just the report from his parents that he “may be severely depressed about something”.
We do not even know what that something is from reports. It is not clear if this is something that Koenig has done before, disappear without making contact with his family. Although from the height of anxiousness the family is conveying about his disappearance it seems we can assume this is a man who would not usually do this.
