Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS - BY JAMES KELLER

presently miss­ing, whose state of emo­tional health may not be very good,” Koenig told a news con­fer­ence in Van­cou­ver, his wife Ju­dith at his side. “Just look out for him.” Po­lice say 41-year-old An­drew Koenig was last seen in Van­cou­ver on Feb. 14. He was due back in Los An­ge­les two days later but never showed up.

Since then, po­lice have can­vassed the man’s friends and searched Van­cou­ver’s sprawl­ing Stan­ley Park, one of his favourite spots in the city, but so far haven’t turned up any­thing. His cell­phone hasn’t been used since Feb. 16, and he last ac­cessed his bank ac­count a few days be­fore that.

Koenig’s par­ents said their son has bat­tled de­pres­sion his en­tire life and be­fore he van­ished, he gave away and sold some of his pos­ses­sions and even cleared out his apart­ment in Los An­ge­les.

He last spoke with his mother a few days be­fore he dis­ap­peared, and she said he sounded “up but de­tached” dur­ing their con­ver­sa­tion. Wal­ter Koenig re­ceived a let­ter from his son a few days later, al­though he didn’t re­veal what ex­actly was in the let­ter.

Wal­ter Koenig said he is es­pe­cially con­cerned his son may harm him­self.
