"We began an active investigation on February 18," Constable Tim Fanning of the Vancouver Police Department told "It is an ongoing investigation."

Andrew is "in a depressed state," his father told Entertainment Tonight. Walter said he and his wife Judy had last heard from Andrew, 42, in early February when he was visiting friends in Toronto.  He then went to Vancouver where he was last seen February 14. He didn't show up for his February 16 flight back to L.A.

Andrew appeared in 27 episodes of Growing Pains as Boner over five seasons in the late 1980s but since leaving the popular sitcom, acting jobs have been rare. He had a small role in 2008's InAlienable, which his father wrote and starred in.

Recently he has also been working as a cameraman for Never Not Funny, a comedy podcast.

The Koenigs are asking anyone with information about Andrew contact the Vancouver PD at 604-717-2534.
