The coordinator of a Vancouver Missing Persons group fears that Andrew Koenig may have committed suicide, he exclusively tells RadarOnline.com.
Wayne Leng – who runs Missingpeople.net – delivers the awful news that the signs are not looking good for the former Growing Pains star who suffers from depression and last spoke with his parents on February 8, 2010, before arriving in Vancouver two days later.
Koenig hasn’t been heard from since February 14th.
Leng told RadarOnline.com: “I fear the fact that he had been suffering from depression and that he may have taken his own life
“There was evidence that he used his bank card and I’m sure the police are doing all that they can but the longer there is no contact from him the worse it looks.
“Hopefully, he will be found alive but depression can be a very strong force and these feelings could have overcome him.”
Walter Koenig – who played Pavel Chekov in the original Star Trek – is in Canada with his wife in a bid to help the police find their son.
Koenig’s mother Judy Levitt said that police told her the last activity on her son’s cell phone was on Feb. 16, 2010, when he was apparently in the Stanley Park area and that there was activity on his bank account at about the same time, but nothing since.
Vancouver police revealed to RadarOnline.com that they had been searching inside the huge 1000 acres Urban park but had still not found any traces of Koenig.
Commissioned in 1886, and with over 8 million visitors per year, Stanley Park is the second largest park in Canada and is larger than New York’s Central Park.
A park spokesperson told RadarOnline.com, “There are deep forest areas where people have gone missing before and it is possible that he could have disappeared into one of these locations.
“The police and park rangers know the terrain very well though and they would have been able to make a sweep to try and locate him if he was inside the park.
“It also has beach areas and sea walls where the Pacific Ocean crests Stanley Park, so, it is possible he could have disappeared into the water too.”
