In a bizarre turn of events, Star Trek star Walter Koenig and his wife suddenly walked out on CNN’s Larry King Live Wednesday night, RadarOnline.com has confirmed.
Walter and Judith Koenig were scheduled to make a public plea to help find their missing son Andrew Koenig, who played “Boner” on the 80s sitcom Growing Pains.
Breaking news involving The Toyota Congressional Hearings and the SeaWorld Whale Death appear to have squeezed time from the TV star and his wife. And with only 9 minutes remaining in the program, King promoted their appearance showing a live shot from a Vancouver, British Columbia studio where the couple was seated waiting to be interviewed.
After the commercial break with only 5 minutes remaining in the program, Larry came back on camera and said this:
“Actor Andrew Koenig, best known for his role in the series Growing Pains has been missing since February 14, Valentine’s Day. Vancouver police believe he may be in the area. Kirk Cameron who starred in Growing Pains has publicly urged Andrew to call him. Andrew’s parents, Walter and Judy, are in Vancouver helping police search for their son. Walter may be familiar to you; he played Chekov in the original Star Trek series.”
Instead of introducing the parents, King paused and told viewers, “ I’m told that they left the studio so we’ll take a quick break and find out why.”
After another commercial break, King returned and said he had no explanation for why the Koenigs suddenly left the studio.
“For some reason unbeknownst to anyone Walter Koenig, the father of the missing Andrew Koenig and Judy, the mother of the missing Andrew Koenig, left the studio in Vancouver. We checked them out, they were prepared to go on, I said hello, they both said hello, we said we’d be on in two minutes, they said fine and they got up and left for reasons unknown.”
An insider at Larry King Live told RadarOnline.com, “What I know is exactly what you saw and heard on our show.”
Andrew is still missing in Vancouver, anyone with information on his whereabouts should call the Vancouver Police Department 604-711-2534.
