From the Vancouver Sun:

Police believe a body found at noon today in Stanley Park is that of missing actor Andrew Koenig.

Koenig, 41, played the character Richard (Boner) Stabone in the 1980s TV series Growing Pains. The actor, who has a long history of depression, was visiting Vancouver and was last seen by friends on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14.

Update: His death was ruled a suicide; Koenigs family addressed the press shortly after this announcement was made. “My son took his own life,” said Walter Koenig.
