Caleb Logan Bratayley, member of the popular YouTube family the Bratayleys, died from an undetected medical condition, his parents confirmed. 

The 13-year-old was pronounced dead last Thursday after police responded to a medical emergency at the family's home in Maryland. The police suspected no foul play, telling People magazine on Monday, "Nothing appeared to be criminal, nothing was suspicious and there was no foul play."

Initially, Caleb's mother Katie said he died from natural causes, but on Monday, the family revealed their son had unknowingly suffered from a medical condition. 

The family made the announcement on Instagram, writing, "Caleb's death has raised many questions about how and why this could happen to a seemingly healthy boy. Sadly, tests have confirmed today that Caleb passed away from an undetected medical condition." 

They did not provide explanation of what the condition might have been, but instead asked their followers to "celebrate his life instead of focus on his death." 

Caleb's memorial service will be live-streamed on Periscope Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET so fans and supporters of the family can participate in the celebration of his life.
