Boner This is a sensitive topic, so I'll be gentle: The Boner has vanished.

Andrew Koenig, the actor who played Richard "Boner" Stabone on TV's Growing Pains, has reportedly gone missing. Police in Vancouver, Canada, are asking the public for help finding him.

The 41-year-old has not been since since Valentine's Day, according to media reports. "The actor's father, Walter Koenig, who played Pavel Checkov on the original Star Trek series, told [People] magazine that his son was visiting friends in Toronto and then traveled to Vancouver, where he lived for a time," MTV.com reports.

The younger Koenig was expected to return to his California home on Feb. 16, and Walter Koenig said the contents of a letter he received from Andrew (postmarked Feb. 15) concerned him. "He sounded despondent," Walter told People. "Nobody has seen this [note] but my wife and I."

Andrew Koenig also appeared in 21 Jump Street and My Two Dads during the '80s and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine in the '90s. Lately, he had been working on standup comedy and documentary films.
