How heartbreaking. We can't imagine how the actor's twin brother, Sullivan Sweeten, must be feeling.
Sawyer's off and on-screen sister, Madylin Sweeten, released the following statement on Facebook:
"At this time I would like to encourage everyone to reach out to the ones you love. Let them have no doubt of what they mean to you."

Once again, we send our condolences to everyone who knew and loved Sawyer.
