Andrew Koenig

The search for Andrew Koenig has come to a tragic end.

After a high-profile, weeklong search for the former Growing Pains star, Vancouver police announced Thursday that they had found the body of the 41-year-old.

On Wednesday, Koenig's father, erstwhile Star Trek star Walter Koenig, abruptly opted out of appearing on Larry King Live, fueling speculation that the search had, one way or another, reached a conclusion.

Koenig was first reported missing on Sunday, when friends alerted police that the filmmaker had failed to board his flight back to the U.S.

He was last seen just two days earlier and, despite multiple public and heartfelt pleas from his parents Walter and Judith Koenig, numerous famous friends doing their part to sound the alarm online, and the Vancouver police's exhaustive search efforts, there had been no official sightings of the actor, who had long suffered with depression, since his disappearance.


Our thoughts and prayers go out to Andrew Koenig's family.
