CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Family and friends of Chelsea Hill gathered at Edgewater park for a vigil this afternoon, on what would have been Chelsea's 15th birthday. 

Chelsea was struck and killed by a hit-skip driver back in May while she was walking near East 40th Street and Carnegie Avenue in Cleveland. There are no suspects at this time, but police say based on video evidence, they believe the suspect vehicle is a well-maintained, 2000 or newer, dark colored, higher end vehicle.

The vehicle will have noticeable damage to the right front area, specifically to the headlight and fog lamp assembly.

Chelsea leaves behind eight sisters, three brothers and countless other family members and friends.

The family hopes continued exposure of her case will lead to tips or the driver coming forward. 

A few days after her death, family spoke from the scene

"Whoever did this, please come forward, please. My family is hurting right now," said Kellie Ashley, Chelsea's niece.

"We just want to say to the person who did this, we've already forgiven you. We just want you to come forward," said Annette Johnson, her sister.

If you have any information you can call investigators at 216-623-5290.
