Andrew Koenig may not be a household name, but odds are he graced your TV screens over the years.

Unfortunately, the former Growing Pains star has been missing nearly a week and friends and family members are asking for help in finding their loved one. "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," television host Dave Holmes told website MaximumFun.

Koenig missed a flight back to the United States on Feb. 16, said Holmes, and an investigation  is ongoing. "The Vancouver Police are involved, and lots of people are looking. And say some prayers or think some positive thoughts?"

The former MTV VJ's plea is not alone.

During his time in Vancouver, Koenig stayed with burlesque dancer and friend Jenny Magenta, who gave insight into his current state of mind.

"His parents have contacted us as he hasn't arrived and they have evidence that he his severely depressed," Magenta explained in a Facebook message late Friday afternoon.

The Twitterverse is also abuzz with news of the missing Koenig, including tweets requesting for any knowledge of his whereabouts from Sarah Silverman, Alyssa Milano, Kevin Smith and comedian Doug Benson.

Best known for his role as Mike Seaver's (Kirk Cameron) best friend, Richard "Boner" Stabone on hit 90's series, Growing Pains, Koenig made headlines back in 2008 after protesting a controversial float in Pasadena's Rose Parade. This "act of civil disobedience " stemmed from his work with human rights group US Campaign for Burma over the years, alongside his Star Trek star father, Walter Koenig.

Koenig currently works as video producer on the podcast Not Never Funny.
