Former 'Growing Pains' Star Missing

 VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Police are asking for the public's help in locating actor Andrew Koenig, who had a recurring role on the 1980s sitcom "Growing Pains."

Vancouver police say Koenig was visiting friends in West Vancouver when he went missing. He was last seen on Feb. 14.

A statement released by the police department says Koenig "has recently been despondent and his family and friends are concerned for his well-being."

Koenig, 41, lives in Venice, Calif., but at one time lived in Vancouver. He is the son of Walter Koenig, who played Chekov on the "Star Trek" television series and movies.

On "Growing Pains" Koenig played Boner, a pal of star Kirk Cameron's character Mike.

 

 

Sorry to burst the bubble of anyone hoping it was Kirk Cameron.

 I was tempted to say "Bet you were all praying it was Kirk, huh?"

i bet kirk is praying he'll

i bet kirk is praying he'll find him first.  if koenig really is suffering from depression, that would be a perfect opportunity for kirk to hand him his ready-made package of answers and "lead him to christ."  that would be a helluva publicity stunt, wouldn't it?  "kirk cameron saves former costar." 

i bet WOTM would love to have boner as well as mike.  add deejay from full house into the mix and you have a sitcom in the works. 

"I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feelings for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright. . . . Or maybe 'stupid' is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don't bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone. They will not inherit the earth, but then neither will I. . . . And I have learned to live, as it were, with the idea that I will never find peace and happiness, either. But as long as I know there's a pretty good chance I can get my hands on either one of them every once in a while, I do the best I can between high spots."

ROFL! I wonder if he's on a wild crocoduck chase on Kirk's recommendation.

Even if it was Kirk I would

Even if it was Kirk I would want him found. I think it isn't an atheist or theist thing, but a human thing to worry about the safety of loved ones.

Wanting Kirk to stop spreading lies is still a separate subject than being missing. I hope the actor in this article is found safe and sound.

I do get the joke and there is nothing wrong with dark humor. But in reality all of us if we knew personally was missing, we would want them found.

I have to admit when I read the title I did think of Kirk.
