'Growing Pains' Star -- Battling Depression

2/21/2010 2:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Andrew KoenigThe parents of Andrew Koenig -- who has reportedly been missing for the past week -- described their son as "suffering from depression" and "not doing good" in the days leading up to his disappearance.

Judy and Walter Koenig (who played Pavel Chekov in the "Star Trek" series) tell TMZ the last time they heard from Andrew was on February 9. They say his cell phone is turned off and that they have learned the last time his phone received a text was on February 16 in Vancouver.

They say he was last seen at a bakery in the Stanley Park area of Vancouver.

The Koenigs tell TMZ they plan to fly up to Vancouver in the next few days. They feel the police in Vancouver have been doing a good job so far.

Lance Miccio, who worked with Koenig on several projects, tells TMZ he reached out to Koenig about a project two weeks ago but Koenig passed, saying he was "not going to work anymore."

Right around that time, Miccio says Koenig dropped off a bag of Miccio's stuff. Miccio says he hasn't spoken to Koenig since.

Miccio also said he thought Koenig was "suffering from depression."

90. Should they find him, luck will have had nothing to do with it!!!
Visit his parents afterwards and see if they think it is 'luck'. NOT!

Vancouver Canada or Vancouver Washington? Is there a landmark like a beautiful bridge where people jump off of? Poor guy. It sounds like he's been preparing for the final moment.

If he's spending his final moments in Vancouver, Wa, he will indeed off himself. I should know, I live across the river.

Maybe he's just taking a vacation to see the olympics.

Readers who haven't a clue how major (clinical) depression works should kill themselves.

It's NOT a selfish act, it's NOT to get attention, it's NOT because of work, lack of work or a breakup. You are clueless. Rid the world of your stupidity. Right now!

CBC (Canadian broadcasting Corporation) has just announced they have found Mr Koenigs body in Seattle. Thoughts are with his family.

The death was "apparent suicide"
