'Growing Pains' Star's Body Found
The body of Growing Pains actor Andrew Koenig is believed to have been found in a Vancouver park Thursday, CNN is reporting.
His parents reported him missing Valentine's Day after he failed to return to Los Angeles on a scheduled flight from Vancouver.
A body was found in Stanley Park in Vancouver about noon Thursday, the broadcaster reported, and the actor's father has been notified that it could be that of Koenig.
It's not clear if police believe foul play was involved. However, Koenig had reportedly been depressed before he went missing.
The actor's father is Walter Koenig, who played Chekov on Star Trek's first television run. The younger Koenig played the character Richard "Boner" Stabone on the '80s family-and-teen show Growing Pains.
