Andrew Koenig's father pleaded on television for his son to give his family a sign that he was all right. Two weeks after the actor disappeared, Walter Koenig—also an actor, the one who played Chekov on the original Star Trek—called a press conference with his wife. "I just want to know you're OK. If it means you just want to stay here, that's okay. You don't have to come back. Just let us know that's your intention."

Vancouver police are working on the assumption that the 41-year-old actor is somewhere in the city, his last known location, People reports. Authorities say they are hopeful that Koenig is merely lying low and "doesn't want to be found." He cleaned out his LA apartment earlier this month. Click here for that story.
