Very sad news.
The body of missing actor Andrew Koenig was discovered on Thursday in Vancouver.
The Growing Pains star, who suffered from depression, had been missing for over a week.
"My son took his own life," said father Walter Koenig, an actor himself (Star Trek alum) who spoke at a press conference in Vancouver on Thursday afternoon.
His body was found in Vancouver's Stanley Park.
"We've already said what a great guy he was and (what) a good human being. He was obviously in a lot of pain," said the elder Koenig. Of others suffering from depression, he adds: "If you can learn anything from this, it's that there are people out there who really care. So before you make that final decision, check it out and talk to somebody."
Sad. Sad. Sad.
But we agree with Walter, suicide is NOT the answer!
