Social media star Annabelle Ham died at the age of 22 following an “epileptic event,” her family announced Monday.

“We’re writing this with heavy, heavy hearts. Annabelle experienced an epileptic event and has gone on to the gates of heaven,” the family captioned a photo on her social media page.

“She struggled with this for a long time and wanted to raise awareness for it, which we will do in honor of her.”

Her family went on to describe her as “beautiful, […] inspiring and lived life to the fullest.”

“Everyone she met was inspired by her energy and the light inside her soul that shined so bright. She was, and will forever be, so so loved,” the family continued in the heartwarming message.

The YouTuber’s family then asked for “prayers of peace” and the “chance to grieve and work through this as a family” before begging fans to not “post or spread speculation or details that are unfounded.”

Per the Daily Mail, Ham had been attending a bachelorette party in Alabama when she went missing.

Her sister Alexandria took to Facebook to report the disappearance, explaining that she had last been seen walking along a pier.

“My sister is missing. We have her phone. She might have fallen off pier,” Alexandria wrote Saturday before officers stepped in.

Fairhope Police then released a statement about her disappearance, where they explained that she had been found “deceased.”

Annabelle — who gained fame after launching a YouTube lifestyle channel in 2014 — had more than 70,000 followers on Instagram and over 77,000 YouTube subscribers.

Her sisters, Amelia and Alexandria, also shared heartfelt tributes on Instagram following her death.
