VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -  Our NBC News partners at WALB are reporting that the parents of teenager Kendrick Johnson want the public to come forward with information. With their attorney Chevene King, Jackie and Kenneth Johnson appeared at a morning conference in Valdosta Tuesday.

Kendrick Johnson died under cloudy circumstances in a high school gym in 2013.

At the conference, and in a prepared release, they appealed to the parents of 25 former and current Lowndes High School students, asking for help to uncover how their son died.

The Johnsons said they had learned the school's wrestling team had not left campus for a tournament the afternoon their son went missing, as previously thought.

The parents say that school officials excused 25 Lowndes High students from class approximately four and a half hours before the chartered bus left the school parking lot headed to Macon.

"We are asking you to talk to your children to urge them, if they saw something, to say something," said family lawyer Chevene B. King, Jr.  "If they heard something, please have them share it with the U.S. Attorney's Office."
