Koenig's Parents Issue Tearful Plea To Missing Actor

Former STAR TREK actor WALTER KOENIG has issued an emotional plea to his son ANDREW to get in touch after he went missing in Vancouver, Canada earlier this month (Feb10).
Police have launched an investigation into the disappearance of Andrew Koenig, who starred in 1980s TV sitcom Growing Pains, after he missed his flight home from Vancouver to Los Angeles on 16 February (10), the same day as his last known sighting. Detectives also claim his cell phone and bank card were last used on 16 February (10).
Local authorities have been combing the area for the 41 year old after receiving a number of reported sightings from locals on Vancouver Island.
His parents Walter and Judith Koenig flew into the city on Tuesday (23Feb10) to take part in a press conference at the Vancouver Police Department on Wednesday (24Feb10).
During the televised appeal, Koenig fought back tears as he begged Andrew to call just to assure them he is alive and well.
He said, "I just want to know you're OK. If it means you just want to stay here (in Vancouver), that's OK. You don't have to come back. Just let us know that's your intention."
Andrew, who suffered from depression, is reported to have cleared out his Venice, California apartment just days before he travelled to Vancouver.
