I have a pile of things for another post, but I want this one to focus on just one news item.
I’ve mentioned a personal enjoyment of the Never Not Funny podcast and the show’s hosts when they come to Vancouver for the comedy festival. Well, the show’s engineer, Andrew Koenig, has disappeared here in town. Andrew has often expressed his love of Vancouver in the past, on the NNF show.
The parents of Andrew Koenig — who has reportedly been missing for the past week — described their son as “suffering from depression
” and “not doing good” in the days leading up to his disappearance.
Judy and Walter Koenig (who played Pavel Chekov in the “Star Trek” series) tell TMZ the last time they heard from Andrew was on February 9. They say his cell phone is turned off and that they have learned the last time his phone received a text was on February 16 in Vancouver.
They say he was last seen at a bakery in the Stanley Park area of Vancouver.
His partners at Never Not Funny made this post to Twitter just a few hours ago.
Please RT: Info about Andrew Koenig, missing 1 week? PLEASE call Vancouver authorities @ 604-717-2967 or 604-717-2534. Case #202029519.
A bizarre and sad tale during the Olympics. With so many visitors coming to town, how common is it for people to disappear during an Olympics? Who else has gone missing?
Please note the Vancouver PD contact numbers and case number above, if you have any information.
