Police Have Found Andrew Koenig's Body

TMZ has a sad and heartbreaking update on the ongoing saga of Andrew Koenig. Police have found the actor's body and his father, Walter Koenig, said it appears that his son took his own life.

Vancouver police released a statement earlier today that said a body was found in Stanley Park around noon that they believed was Koenig, the 41-year-old actor, activist and photographer who played Boner on the 80's sitcom 'Growing Pains'.

Andrew's mother, Judy, and father have just offered a public statement. Through the tears, they thanked the people who reached out to the family and urged people who think they are suffering from depression to seek help through their friends and family.

I am so sorry for the family and friends. I know what it is like to be so depressed that you want to take your own life. I was at that point a few years back, but I found help and am on my way to a wonderful life. Not saying it wasn't a long struggle and still is today, but I am getting there. Anyone out there that is considering suicide, PLEASE get the help needed. Ask anyone for the help - a friend, pastor, doctor, ER physician, ect. Don't wait until it is your name in the paper. Again, my sympathies to his family and friends.

Such a shame. When someone is so depressed to the point where they feel there is no way out or nobody that can help them, somehow if we can get it out there that death is final, but every problem has a solution no matter how big or small and that life is worth living at any expense. My thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.

Walter, God bless you man. Fathers should never have to bury their sons. My heart goes out to you and I will pray for you and Judy that good some how comes from this. Maybe this will wake some up.
