LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (X17online) - Actor Andrew Koenig, who found fame as Kirk Cameron's friend Boner on Growing Pains, was found dead Thursday in Vancouver, B.C. Suicide is believed to be the cause.
Police say that his body was found "in a densely wood area...unseen from the path." He had been missing since February 16th. Koenig was last seen by friends that he was visiting in Vancouver, but never boarded his flight back to Los Angeles.
The 41-year old actor's parents say that their son had been suffering from depression and had stopped taking his medication. His father, Star Trek actor Walter Koenig, had been very public in trying to generate help in the search for his son.
Police do not suspect foul play was involved. Funeral arrangements have not been announced.
