We touched on it this morning in the roundup, but I wanted to just give one more shout to the effort that's underway to find any information anyone has about actor Andrew Koenig, who's been missing for about a week, after being last seen in Vancouver on February 14.
Koenig as an actor may be most familiar to you from his role as Richard "Boner" Stabone on Growing Pains, but he's now firmly entrenched in an awfully strong comedy cabal with the guys who work on Never Not Funny
, where he's the video guy. The podcast has featured Dave Holmes (one of my top pop-culture humans of 2009, remember), along with other folks like Paul F. Tompkins, Conan O'Brien, and lots and lots of others.
His friends are on Facebook
trying to find him, his disappearance has been covered on Twitter by practically everybody whose feed I follow, and his dad (Walter Koenig, of Star Trek) has talked about the search, and has been pretty open about the fact that Andrew suffered from depression. As you can imagine, they're very eager to locate him.
The odds that any one post, tweet, update, or anything else is going to lead to somebody recognizing the guy are admittedly small. But it's been quite an impressive outpouring that has suggested an awful lot of people have a lot of affection for him, so one more stick on the fire can't hurt. If you know anybody in Vancouver, now's the time to make sure they've seen this story and know that any information at all would be a kindness to the family and all his very worried pals.
Here's what his dad asks
: "If you've seen Andrew since February 14th, PLEASE contact Detective Raymond Payette of the Vancouver PD at 604-717-2534."
