Status: Existence Unconfirmed

Bratayley is a YouTube vlog family with, as of August 2017, 4.8 million subscribers. They have two parents, Bill and Katie, and three kids, Caleb, Annie, and Haley.

On October 1, 2015, at 7:08 PM EST, Caleb died from an undiagnosed case of an incurable genetic heart disease called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.[1][2] They had filmed every day for over 4 years at the time. In a vlog posted a little less than a week later titled Haley's New Bed, they had posted footage of Katie, Annie, Haley and a friend of Annie's in the car the morning of October 1st, 2015 when Haley had lost a tooth. Since that footage was released, it is speculated that there was more footage of the day not released, especially since he had not died until that evening. Bratayley has not stated if there is any other footage from that day the family is keeping since the subject is still very upsetting to them. If the footage does exist, it will likely not ever be released since the family doesn't talk about it happening as much as possible. Since the loss of Caleb, they have made a promise to not grieve on camera or talk about him unless it is on a special occasion such as his birthday or anniversary of it happening, making those who speculate it is real and want to see give up hope on ever seeing it.
