The parents of missing "Growing Pains" actor Andrew Koenig have issued an emotional plea for their son to contact them. Koenig was visiting friends in Vancouver when he went missing more than a week ago.

The Venice, Calif., native, age 41, had a recurring role on the 1980s sitcom as Boner, a pal of star Kirk Cameron's character, Mike.

Walter Koenig, best known for playing Pavel Chekov on the original "Star Trek" television series, said Wednesday his son stopped taking antidepressant medication about a year ago.

Vancouver police Constable Tim Fanning says there has been no activity on Koenig's cell phone or bank records since Feb. 16. Fanning says Vancouver's 1,000-acre, thickly forested Stanley Park, which Koenig loved, has been searched thoroughly.
