"We have been affected by this a lot. Jason was always happy and smiling. We enjoyed every moment we shared as a family," Montes' aunt Roxana Chacon said.

During the press conference on Friday, Montes' family pleaded for help in finding the person who killed the teen.

"The family last saw Jason stepping outside his house at approximately 9:45 p.m. to make a phone call. After that phone call, the following morning, which is the 24th, is when the family noticed he was missing," FBCSO detective Daniel Calvillo said.

Detectives told Eyewitness News that the area where Montes was found is a high traffic area, and they're hopeful someone saw something.

"You might hide from us, but you cannot hide from God," Montes' sister Jennifer said.
