By Wnct Staff

GREENVILLE, N.C. -The family of Austin Baeza took to the streets Saturday, in hopes of getting information about the hit and run accident that killed their son.

More than a dozen family members joined the Pitt County Sheriff's Office to canvass neighborhoods.

They knocked on doors, handed out flier, and talked to people around the spot where Baeza was killed.

Baeza was hit and killed by a car along highway 33 on Aug. 18th, 2012

Austin's sister and brother say they just want answers.

"I won't' be mad at whoever, if they come forward I will not be mad. I will be said of course. We just want to know who did this and why? Because, the not knowing is what hurts the most," said Nicolas Baeza.

"He could always just brighten your day and the person took that, so just have a little bit of closure would be nice," said Alexa Baeza

The Baeza family says they plan on placing another billboard along highway 33 in the coming months.

If you have any information on the hit and run of Austin Baeza contact Pitt-Greenville Crimestoppers.

GREENVILLE, N.C. - The family of a young man killed in a hit-and-run is not giving up hope for justice.

Friday, the family of 20-year-old Austin Baeza will be in Greenville, at the crash site where a driver hit and killed him on the side of Highway 33 near Memorial Drive in August.
     
CrimeStoppers, family friends and even a local businessman have offered up a cash reward for information in this case.
     
Still, deputies have not found who is responsible.
     
This afternoon, the Baeza's are putting up a billboard near the crash site.
     
On Saturday, they plan on going door-to-door in the area, handing out flyers, asking if anyone has any information.
