Missing Actor Andrew Koenig's Body Found
The body of missing actor Andrew Koenig has been found in Vancouver, Canada.
The former "Growing Pains" star was last seen on February 14. He disappeared during a trip to
Vancouver and was reported missing by a friend after failing to show up for his flight home to Los
Angeles on February 16.
His parents, former "Star Trek" actor Walter Koenig and his wife Judy, issued an emotional plea to
the 41 year old during a police press conference on Wednesday, when they begged Andrew to get in
touch just to assure them he is "OK".
The same day, his friend Jenny Magenta confessed her fears that the star may have "taken his own
life" - and now his family and friends have had their worst fears confirmed.
The actor's body was found in Vancouver's Stanley Park around 12pm local time on Thursday
Vancouver authorities held a press conference at 5pm (PST), just hours after the discovery, during
which a police spokesperson revealed they had no reason to believe foul play was involved in
Koenig's death. However, their investigations are continuing.
The representative told the news conference, "Andrew's body was found in the park by friends who
had initiated their own search. Our investigations are continuing... We will not release any further
details about cause of death. We have no reason to believe foul play was involved."
Koenig's dad Walter fought back tears as he told reporters, "We've already said what a great guy he
was and a good human being... He was obviously in a lot of pain... What you can learn from this is
that there are people out there who really, really care."
Judy Koenig added, "He was much loved and he had much to contribute in this world. This is the
only statement that we are making. Please respect our privacy."
