Andrew Koenig, “Growing Pains'” Boner, Missing

If you grew up watching Growing Pains — or even Star Trek — you likely know the name Andrew Koenig. What you may not know is that the 42-year-old actor has been missing for more than a week, and his shaken family and friends are sick with worry.

Koenig, who played Richard Milhous “Boner” Stabone on Growing Pains between 1985 and 1989, is the son of actor Walter Koenig — best remembered as Pavel Chekov on Star Trek. Today, the younger Koenig is the camera operator on the comedy podcast “Never Not Funny.” He was last seen in Vancouver on Feb. 14 before vanishing without a trace, according to show’s website Maximumfun.org. “Andrew is a super, super good guy, and we’re thinking of him and his family. Koenig didn’t make his flight back to the US on Feb. 16. If you’re in the Northwest, please keep your eyes out, and no matter where you are, please share this news,” the site reads.

“He went up to [Vancouver] to visit friends who last saw him on the 14th. Any information we can get on his whereabouts would be helpful,” Danielle Koenig, Andrew’s sister, told Zap2it.com, which was first to report the news.

“He was in a depressed state,” Walter says of his last conversation with his son. But the veteran actor was quick to add that while troubled, Andrew is not addicted to drugs. “So many times when these kinds of reports about behavior and habits come out, there are insinuations that are untue. Andrew has no narcotic habit.”

Anyone with information on Koenig’s whereabouts is asked to call the Vancouver Police at 604-717-2534.
