The Memorial Day holiday is serving as a painful reminder for this family as they continue the fight for justice in the case.

Investigators say they continue to make progress in finding out what happened to Austin.

The latest update from investigators took place back in October, the month of Austin’s birthday when they announced that they held numerous interviews in the search for anyone who may have played a role in his death.
