Missing Actor’s Body Found in Vancouver

Growing Pains actor Andrew Koenig, who had been missing since February 14, was found dead in Vancouver today, according to a source close to the family. CNN is reporting that Koenig’s body was found in a park, based on information from the unnamed source, who spoke to Koenig's father earlier today after he received the news. Vancouver police confirmed that a body was found in Stanley Park at noon today, but would only say it was “believed to be that of Andrew Koenig.” Koenig, 41, who played Richard "Boner" Stabone on the eighties sitcom, was reported missing after he missed a flight to Los Angeles from Vancouver last week.

Update: At a press conference this evening, Koenig's father told reporters that Andrew committed suicide: "My son took his own life," he said.
