(Newser) – The mystery of missing Andrew Koenig deepens: Last night, his parents inexplicably walked out on Larry King Live two minutes before their scheduled interview. “We checked them out, they were prepared to go on,” King said upon returning from commercial. “I said hello, they both said hello, we said we’d be on in two minutes, they said fine and they got up and left for reasons unknown.” Watch the video on Radar.

“The obvious conclusion: After more than a week with no real developments, they got some news about their son, good or bad, that obviated the need for an interview,” writes Adrian Chen on Gawker. No word on what that news may be, although Radar has an interview with a Vancouver missing-persons group coordinator who fears Koenig committed suicide. Radar also obtained the last known note written by Koenig, detailing instructions about a hideaway bed in his cleaned-out apartment.
