Now that actor Andrew has been missing for more than a week, his father, Star Trek actor Walter Koenig, has finally come forward to say his son was in a bad emotional state right before his disappearance

Andrew Koenig (in video on right) starred on the 90s sitcom Growing Pains as Mike Seaver‘s (Kirk Cameron) rowdy best friend, Richard “Boner” Stabone, but the actor, now 41, had been battling depression before disappearing on Valentine’s Day, his dad says.

Andrew’s dad, Star Trek actor Walter Koenig, posted a statement on his Web site describing his son as “suffering from depression” and “not doing good” before last being seen in Vancouver, Canada Feb. 14. According to the site, Andrew was supposed to take a plane back to the U.S. Feb. 16, but never actually boarded the plane. No one has heard from him since.

His dad pleads, “If you’ve seen Andrew since February 14th, contact Detective Raymond Payette of the Vancouver PD at 604-717-2534.”

Both of Andrew’s parents plan on going to Vancouver to look for their son in the next couple days.
