VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Police are asking for the public’s help in locating actor Andrew Koenig, who had a recurring role on the 1980s sitcom ‘Growing Pains.’

Vancouver police say Koenig was visiting friends in West Vancouver when he went missing. He was last seen on Feb. 14.

A statement released by the police department says Koenig “has recently been despondent and his family and friends are concerned for his well-being.”

Koenig, 41, lives in Venice, Calif., but at one time lived in Vancouver. He is the son of Walter Koenig, who played Chekov on the ‘Star Trek‘ television series and movies.

On ‘Growing Pains’ Koenig played Boner, a pal of star Kirk Cameron’s character Mike.
