Boner Update – Missing Actor Andrew Koneig’s Parents Drop Out Of Larry King Live At Last Second.

Parents of missing, depressed Growing Pains star Andrew Koenig were supposed to be on Larry King Live. But just two minutes before their interview, they walked out of the studio. 
Towards the end of the show, Larry King Live went to commercial with a teaser for an upcoming interview with Walter Koenig (Star Trek’s Checkov) and his wife, Judith. But when the show returned from break, they had abruptly left the Vancouver studio where they were going to be interviewed. 
Walter Koenig had been releasing updates via his website, most recently detailing that he had received a worryingly despondent email from his clinically depressed son on Feb. 16th. The obvious conclusion: After more than a week with no real developments, they got some news about their son, good or bad, that obviated the need for an interview.
Lets just hope its good.
Hang in there Andy.

BONER IS MISSING! – Andrew Koenig,Who Played ‘Boner’ on ‘Growing Pains,’ Is Missing

Police and worried loved ones are searching for actor Andrew Koenig, best known for playing “Boner” on ‘Growing Pains,’ who went missing in Vancouver a week ago.

Koenig, 42, was last seen on Feb. 14 and he missed his flight out of the Olympic host city two days later, according to a statement from TV host Dave Holmes on MaximumFun.org. Authorities are searching for the actor, who has recently been working as a camera operator on the comedy podcast, ‘Never Not Funny.’

While in Vancouver, he was staying with burlesque artist Jenny Magenta, who took to Facebook on Friday to ask for help in finding Koenig, whose parents told her he may be “severely depressed” about something.

For four years, Koenig played Mike Seaver’s affable best friend Richard “Boner” Stabone on ‘Growing Pains.’ He was written off the show in 1989 when “Boner” signed up for the Marine Corps.  He’s not gay, and probably not even Bisexual but he is a part of my 80’s childhood and IMO he was always much cuter than Kirk Cameron.  Also he might be in trouble, depression is a terrible thing, believe me I knowm  so I thought I should give a shoutout to anyone out there who might see or run into him.

Anyone with any information about Andrews whereabouts please contact Det. Raymond Payette of the Vancouver PD at 604-717-2534 or ask him to please contact his family
