Andrew Koenig is missing

From Walter Koenig's website:

Andrew Koenig, the son of Star Trek [and Babylon 5] actor Walter Koenig, is missing. The last time Andrew
Koenig was seen was on Valentine's Day, February 14, 2010, in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Andrew Koenig never boarded his flight back to the US, and he hasn't heard from since then.

He was last seen at a bakery in the Stanley Park area of Vancouver.

Andrew Koenig, 41, was working as a camera operator on the show "Never Not Funny" as well
as doing improv in Los Angeles. Best known as "Boner" from "Growing Pains", Andrew also
had a role in "Deep Space Nine", and is a talented actor director, editor and photographer as
well as a passionate activist. In 2008, he was arrested at the Rose Bowl while protesting
China's part in the genocide in the country of Burma.

This is a serious matter that has Koenig's friends and family gravely concerned. If you have
seen him, emailed him or had any contact after the 14th or spent time with him during his stay
in Vancouver please call Detective Raymond Payette of the Vancouver PD at 604-717-2534.

Please share this and send prayers and positive thoughts. If you wish to leave Walter a note,
visit his site at: www.walterkoenigsite.com



I'm sure you'll all join me in hoping that Andrew will be found safe and sound, and soon!

I read about this earlier. What a terrible time for the Koenig family. My thoughts are with them at this most difficult time. I hope Andrew is well and home safely soon.

Yeah, all my prayers are with them, though it looks not at all good.

Heard on the news that he was reportedly seen in Vancouver. Hope it's true...

Re: Andrew Koenig is missing

I heard on the news this morning something about there being some evidence he was alive. Credit card usage I think they were talking about, or some kind of withdrawing of funds.

Not to be indelicate, I hope, but has he has any history of some history of this, or even perhaps some slight psychological troubles? With luck, maybe he just felt a need for "space". Unfortunately, the images of kidnapping also spring to mind.

Here's hoping it's all just a misunderstanding of some kind, or for whatever reason he's soon reunited with his obviously worried family.

Re: Andrew Koenig is missing

His sister was just on Larry King Live. Apparently he's struggled with depression and one of the friends he visited reported that he was off his meds. In addition, he seemed to have moved out of his apartment in CA. His sister said that he's gone off before but never without telling people that he wanted to be alone.

You got it. I just hope that the credit card wasn't stolen. Wonder if they have a camera at the location where the card was used?

Sad news, I hope he's ok. He looks a kind sweet sort in his pictures, too.

Re: Andrew Koenig is missing

If you've not seen it, he plays "The Joker" in this fan film

It's on the short list of Fan Films that people talk about when the subject comes up.
