It's been a long time since they acted together on the set of Growing Pains, but Kirk Cameron has never forgotten costar Andrew Koenig – and now desperately worries about him after he went missing amid signs he was depressed.

"I am praying for his family during this time of distress and for his safe return," Cameron says in a statement. "Andrew, if you’re reading this, please call me."

Koenig, 41, who starred as Boner on the show, never returned to his Los Angeles home as scheduled on Feb. 14 after a trip to Canada. His father described him as sounding "despondent" the last time they spoke.

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.
