Hours after announcing the unexpected passing of their son, YouTube's Bratayley family has revealed the teen's cause of death.

In an Instagram post shared late Monday, October 5, the Bratayleys (not their real name) said Caleb had died of an "undetected medical condition."

"Caleb's death has raised many questions about how and why this could happen to a seemingly healthy boy," they captioned a photo of the young YouTuber. "Sadly, tests have confirmed today that Caleb passed away from an undetected medical condition. We'll have more definitive answers in the coming weeks but ask that you help us celebrate his life instead of focus on his death."

With this in mind, the family plans to share Caleb's memorial in the same way they've shared so many other moments in the past.
