Andrew was suffering from depression at the time of his disappearance. The last time the Koenigs heard from Andrew was on February 9. His cell phone is turned off and the last time his phone received a text was on February 16 in Vancouver.
The Koenigs plan to fly up to Vancouver in the next few days.
Walter said of the Vancouver police and their efforts to find his son, “They have been kind, sensitive, generous and just extraordinary. Two of their investigators are working tirelessly today on their day off. They have been wonderful and I ask people to call the number from the Vancouver Police department … if you have any information.”
That police department number is 604-717-2534.
In defense of any rumors that might surface in the future, Walter added, “So many times when these kinds of reports about behavior and habits come out, there are insinuations that are untrue. Andrew has no narcotic habit.”
While he greatly appreciates your thoughts, prayers, and encouragement… Please DO NOT contact Walter at this time unless it is an emergency.
