St. Louis (KSDK) - The family of a woman killed in a hit and run crash wants the people responsible for her daughter's death to come forward.

Amber Wood, 23, was struck while crossing in the 700 block of S. Broadway around 1:50 a.m. Friday. Wood died at the scene.

Police took a person into custody Friday night for questioning, but later released that individual.

Georgie Busch, Amber Wood's mother, joined other members of the family outside Broadway Oyster Bar Monday morning to plead for the public's help in tracking down her daughter's killer.

"I wasn't done with her and she wasn't done with me," Busch said. "I'm here to plead with the general public to help catch the person that murdered my daughter. If you know who that person is or if you know anything, please turn them in."

Matt Anton, Wood's boyfriend, described Amber as the love of his life, saying he would never get over her death.

"She was the most loving person I've ever met in my entire life. She's the sweetest person I've ever met in my entire life," he said. "I'm going to miss her a whole lot."

Wood worked as a waitress at a Chesterfield restaurant.

Anyone with information on the hit and run accident that claimed the life of Amber Wood is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 866-371-TIPS.

NewsChannel 5 will have more information on this story later today.
