‘Severely depressed’ Growing Pains actor missing in Vancouver

Actor Andrew Koenig, best known for his role as ‘Boner’ Stabone on 80s sitcom “Growing Pains,” has been missing for a week after he failed to board a flight back to the US in Vancouver.

Koenig, described as “severely depressed” about “something” by friends, has not been seen nor heard from since February 14th. Koenig was slated to fly out of Vancouver two days later. While in Vancouver, Koenig stayed with burlesque dancer Jenny Magenta, who posted a note on Facebook indicating that the actor may have been spotted since his disappearance.

TV Host Dave Holmes made the following plea for help in the case:

Our friend Andrew Koenig, the camera operator for Never Not Funny, hasn’t been seen in nearly a week. Here’s what mutual friend Dave Holmes has to say:


Andrew Koenig (AK-47, the video guy on “Never Not Funny,” and “Boner” from “Growing Pains”) has been missing for a week, last seen 2/14 in Vancouver. Didn’t make his flight back to the US on 2/16. The Vancouver Police are involved, and lots of people are looking. Could you reblog this and help get the word out? And say some prayers or think some positive thoughts?

Andrew is a super, super good guy, and we’re thinking of him and his family. If you’re in the Northwest, please keep your eyes out, and no matter where you are, please share this news.

If you’ve seen Andrew since February 14th, contact Detective Raymond Payette of the Vancouver PD at 604-717-2534.
