Kirk Cameron is once again sparking conversations with his conservative views on marriage.

In a recent interview with the Christian Post, the former Growing Pains star said, "Wives are to honor and respect and follow their husband's lead, not to tell their husband how he ought to be a better husband. When each person gets their part right, regardless of how their spouse is treating them, there is hope for real change in their marriage."

On Feb. 16, Walter Koenig received a note from his son Andrew, which caused his father to grow concerned about his whereabouts.

"He sounded despondent," says Walter, who spoke to PEOPLE from his Los Angeles home. "Nobody has seen this [note] but my wife and I."

Andrew Koenig, 41, who starred as Boner on the late 80s sitcom Growing Pains, was set to arrive in Los Angeles on Feb. 14 after a trip to Canada, according to the Vancouver Police Department.

"He went to visit some friends in Toronto and after there, he went to Vancouver," says his father. "It’s a place where he felt very comfortable. He lived there for a few years."

Andrew still hasn’t returned to his Venice, Calif., residence. His father says there wasn’t a specific situation that would’ve prompted his disappearance.

"I think it’s something that has been a part of his makeup for a long time. There’s no single trauma. There’s no episode. There’s nothing of that nature," says Walter, who added that drugs were not an issue.
