Wichita - A spokesperson for the family of Lucas Hernandez says the family is asking for privacy as they arrange a memorial service.
Misty Cox says Lucas's parents, Jonathan Hernandez and Jamie Orr, are planning a public memorial service for Lucas.
Cox asks the community to remember that Lucas' parents will be grieving the loss of their son for a lifetime. She asks the community to be respectful.
She says the intensive attention the community has focused on Lucas has made it difficult for his parents to grieve his loss. Lucas' family members would like to plan a public memorial, but they will choose to make it private if their wishes aren't respected.
Lucas Hernandez was reported missing on February 17 and was found with the help of a private investigator last week.
No charges have been filed against anyone in connection with his death at this time. A cause of death will be released once an autopsy is complete.
