US actor Andrew Koenig, who has been missing since February 14th, has reportedly been found dead in Vancouver, according to CNN.
A source close to the family told CNN the body of the former Growing Pains star was found in a park.
Koenig, 41, was reported missing by his parents after he did not board a flight to Los Angeles from Vancouver last week.
Vancouver police confirmed a body was found in Stanley Park around noon on Thursday, but said only that it was “believed to be that of Andrew Koenig.”
A police news conference is due, with his parents, including former Star Trek actor Walter Koenig, expected to attend.
The Koenigs said they received a letter from him last week in which their son wrote in a “despondent tone.”
The actor had stopped taking medication for depression about a year ago, his father said.
Koenig appeared in 25 episodes of Growing Pains from 1985 to 1989, playing Richard “Boner” Stabone, plus roles in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, 21 Jump Street, and Adam-12.
UPDATE: At a press conference on Thursday evening, Walter Koenig confirmed that a body found in Vancouver’s Stanley Park was indeed that of actor Andrew Koenig who was missing since Feb 14, 2010.
Walter Koenig told the press: “My son took his own life”.
