    Default Andrew Koenig's Body Found in Vancouver Park

    Actor Andrew Koenig -- best known for his role as Kirk Cameron's pal Boner on the '80s sitcom Growing Pains -- was found dead Thursday in Vancouver, B.C.

    At a press conference attended by Koenig's family Thursday evening, police said the actor's body was discovered "in a densely wood area ... unseen from the path" by "family and friends who initiated their own private search." (His father, Star Trek actor Walter Koenig, was among the people who joined in on the search.)

    Foul play is not suspected.

    "My son took his own life," his father Walter told reporters, adding that his son had been battling depression.

    "Don't ignore it; don't rationalize it," he said in regards to depression. "Extend a hand."

    The 41-year-old actor had been missing since Feb. 16.

    After visiting pals in Vancouver, he never boarded his flight back to Los Angeles. (Prior to his trip, he reportedly had moved out of his Venice, Calif., apartment of nine years and sold a number of his belongings.)

    His parents phoned police after receiving a disturbing letter from their son.

    In an interview with UsMagazine.com earlier this week, his father Walter refused to discuss details on the note. But he revealed that his son was not taking medication for depression.

    Asked how his son was coping with depression, Walter told Us, "That is what we are trying to find out ... In his point of view, things were not going well."

    Burlesque artist Jenny Magenta -- the last person to see Koenig alive -- told Us he "looked healthy" when he arrived in Vancouver Feb. 11 to visit her. "We were talking about old times and friends." But she told Us he soon began acting "out of character," insisting on paying her for allowing him to stay at her apartment.

    "Think about it -- a friend who you've known for years comes to visit you and they're wanting to pay you rent?" she told Us. "That's just weird."

    When she woke up Feb. 14, Magenta tells Us Koenig was missing.

    "No parent should have to deal with anytime like this," Koenig's father Walter told Us in an interview earlier this week.

    He described his son as "a good human being who has "an awful lot left to contribute in this world."

    very sorry to hear this. I hope his family is able to gain some peace now. Depression is an evil beast.

    Wow that is sad. I met his father Walter (Chekov on Star Trek) a few months ago and even got a picture taken with him.

    I remember him on Growing Pains.

    Heard Walter Koenig's addressing the press on the radio on the way home. Was hard not to tear up listening to his pain. So very sad.

    I'm surprised there hasn't been an "accidental death OD from Viagra" joke yet.

    On the surface, I thought this was going to be a former-child-star-couldn't-get-a-job thing but he seemed to be working and had many friends and a supportive family. I wonder what the source of his depression was.

    The funniest part of his role on Growing Pains was when we found out his Dad's name was Sylvester Stabone. Cracked me up then, cracks me up now.

    RIP Andrew Koenig
