Walter Koeing's son, Andrew Koeing who played "boner" on Growing Pains has been missing since Feb. 14th.
A friend of his said he was in a depressive state and never made it back from the Winter Olympics.
There has been a report made on TV's The Insider.

Sarah Silverman and Alyssa Milano have been tweeting his whereabouts. Trying to help find him.

I always liked Boner (not something I expected to type).  I hope they find him alive and well.

Not to downplay the potential tragedy of this story, but I can't help wondering how many calls the family or whoever is getting from people saying "I've seen Boner, he's in my pants uh-huh-huh-huh" or "Boner was with me when I woke up this morning"
STOP HIM! He's supposed to die!

This is a really potentially sad story. The Canadian police are reporting that it has been difficult getting the word out due to Olympics coverage. But they've been getting a lot of reports of sightings recently.

The latest news is that the sightings are leading the police to believe he may simply be lying low in Vancouver. 

But Walter Keonig has gone to Vancouver in search of his son who he has reported was very depressed. I hope it turns out well and they find him or he resurfaces.

According to Trekweb, the Vancouver police may have found his body in the park he loved to go to.

This is bad news, if true.  Update: Its now confirmed, suicide.

That's a real shame.  "A permanent solution to a temporary problem."  That's easy to say when you're not the one in the depths of depression.

Again, not to downplay the tragedy, but does anyone think that this could prompt WB to release more seasons of Growing Pains

STOP HIM! He's supposed to die!

I doubt the poor guy's death is going to generate a new or lasting interest in Growing Pains.

This story did have some legs. It's probably unlikely, but it's possible that it may generate some interest in the show again.

STOP HIM! He's supposed to die!

 It is sad. And this is a bigger topic that could be discussed elsewhere in the forum.

That said, depression is such a wide spread ailment. I've heard stories of how difficult it is to live with and deal with.
