Andrew Koenig's Parents' Emotional Plea

2/24/2010 6:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Walter and Judith Koenig just made a heartbreaking plea to their son, missing actor Andrew Koenig -- begging him to let them know he's alright.

Andrew Koenig presser: Click to watch
At a Canadian news conference, the parents of the "Growing Pains" star spoke directly to their son, choking back tears as they said "We just want to know that you're O.K. and if you want to stay here, change your life ... that's O.K."

The Koenigs also added he had been taking medication for depression -- but stopped taking it a year ago.

Andrew's mother closed the conference by saying "You are loved, you count and you matter."

My prayers go out to your family. I can't imagine how painful this must be. God speed and may your son be found safe.

Cool it. Your son is probably yanking your chain and bolstering his less than stellar career. Left new running shoes on stoop? Posted a Run for Your Life comic video? Get real. He's wanting to have the last laugh.

This is my first post here even though I have enjoyed TMZ for a long time. But I just had to comment on this. If he is OK and just playing "feel sorry for me, little rich kid games" then SHAME on him to put his parents through such pain. For his parents sake I hope he is ok and this turns out good for everyone.

I pray for this family. Not knowing what is going on with a child,
adult in a time of need would be more than many people could bear.
#2 Justin, where do you come off being so judgmental and harsh when you have no idea of the facts. Is it a hobby of yours to tear down people when they are suffering? Hope nothing goes wrong in your life.
Think about it.

If the only thing you are remembered for is a show that went off the air 18 years ago, are you really an actor.

Andrew, look at the smallest things to make it through the darkness--your family, friends and fans love you and want you on this earth. Take your time but let them know you are okay, don't be selfish, your parents are hurting. There is always hope, you have to grab at it, reach out to people. Don't miss the first tulips and daffodils poking their way up, it won't be long now.

Brainwave feed back interactives software is sold to the general public some science people and doctors with training in brain actives can help anyone to better and heal themselfs/More so than the old school don`t look in there dope`um out and I`am rich headdoctors.Computer brain loops means you can see your brain working and misfires so you can THINK for yourself not be preprogrammed into misfuntions but reprogrammed by the self to fuction at your best.97% of doctors don`t want you to see your won brainwave fuctions as that will put them out of work.EBS DBS and a million quacks and R/F head FN`s later and I teach the PH-D`s as they study on HUMAN SUBJECTS in a day of broadcasting in all types of feilds satellites image sound synratronics in 3d anyone can be FN`ed with via wireless as the brainwave is a mini broadcast it`s self that is over powed by ALL human built broadcasts.Nuro R/F interfacement is impossible to stop with any and all broadcasts built by humans even tesla could control the brainwave as a remote control as they have showed for many many years now.TECHNOCRACTICS? no just mob rightwing SS stealing us all blind
