Andrew Koenig's parents wish their son had realized how many people cared about him.
"My son took his own life," dad Walter Koenig said during a police news conference this evening. "Obviously, he was in a lot of pain."
Andrew's body was discovered by a group of friends who had organized their own search at noon Thursday in a densely wooded area of Vancouver's Stanley Park.
Walter said that Andrew considered the 1,000-acre landmark a second home. Police said that three search-and-rescue teams searched the area on Tuesday because they knew it was one of his favorite places, but found no trace of him.
Now that their son is gone, the actor's parents hope that others who suffer from depression will be encouraged to seek help.
