VANCOUVER, BC—Police found the body of missing "Growing Pains" actor, Andrew Koenig.
According to police, the body was discovered in Stanley Park in Vancouver today at around noon.
On Wednesday, Koenig's family made a public plea for the actor's safe return.
"You are loved, you count, you matter," Koenig's mother, Judy Koenig, said Wednesday, addressing her son from police headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia, 10 days after he was last seen.
His father, "Star Trek" actor Walter Koenig, added: "I just want to know you're OK. If it means you just want to stay here, that's OK. You don't have to come back. Just let us know that's your intention."
"We think he's probably in a very depressed state," Judy Koenig told reporters.
Koenig has been missing since February 14.
Records show that Koenig's cell phone received a text message two days later in the Olympic host city's vast Stanley Park, but he failed to make his flight home that same day.
Friends say the 41-year old filmmaker sparked further worry when he cleaned out his Venice apartment and sold off some of his possessions prior to his trip up north.
"He is white, 5'5" tall, 135 lbs., with long, brown shoulder-length hair and brown eyes." "Andrew, who once lived in Vancouver, liked walking in Stanley Park," according to a police statement.
"Anyone who sees Andrew or has information about his whereabouts is asked to call 911."
He is the son of Walter Koenig, who played Chekov on the "Star Trek" television series and movies.
On "Growing Pains" Koenig played Boner, a pal of star Kirk Cameron's character Mike.
He also appeared on "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" and played The Joker in 2003's "Batman: Dead End."
