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.

Actor Who Played "Boner" on 'Growing Pains' Is Missing

Andrew KoenigLike a lot of people nowadays, I seem to hear all of my breaking news reports on Twitter, and that's how I found out that actor and activist Josh Andrew Koenig is missing. If the name doesn't ring a bell, he's the son of actor Walter Koenig ('Star Trek') and played Boner on the 80s sitcom 'Growing Pains.'

Koenig was last seen in Vancouver last week. He was supposed to fly back home on February 16 but did not board the flight and no one has heard from him since. Those familiar with the writing of Harlan Ellison know that the story "Jeffty is Five" was inspired by Koenig.

Koenig has been a political activist for quite some time and is also a camera operator on Never Not Funny. Several celebrities, including VH-1's Doug Benson, Jimmy Pardo (Koenig's brother-in-law), Sarah Silverman, Alyssa Milano, and 'How I Met Your Mother' star Alyson Hannigan have been tweeting about his disappearance and a Facebook page has been started. If you have any information about Koenig at all, please contact the Vancouver Police Department at 604-717-2534.

Update: Koenig's parents tell TMZ that he was suffering from depression and that the last time they heard from him was on February 9.

20 questions with Jimmy Pardo

Jimmy PardoNo matter what the context or setting -- whether he's hosting TV shows like "National Lampoon's Funny Money" on the Game Show Network, performing stand-up comedy on "The Tonight Show," starring in his own half-hour special on Comedy Central or countless other TV appearances, Pardo's work is not only highlighted by a wonderfully expressive mug, but you could be excused for thinking he invented The Deadpan Expression, The Arched-Eyebrow Look Of Disdain, The Are-You-F**king-Kidding-Me Wide-Eyed Expression, or the Grin of Real (or Feigned) Surprise, among others. We need to point out that, while some of these facial masterpieces are presented in response to things a contestant, guest or audience member has said, sometimes Pardo is reacting to things he himself says!

1. Where were you born?
I was born on the south side of Chicago... that's the baddest part of town.
