Jan. 20 (UPI) -- Pawn Stars personality Rick Harrison's son Adam has died at the age of 39, the family announced.

"You will always be in my heart! I love you Adam," Rick, 58, captioned a photo of the two of them together in happier times on Instagram Friday.

"Our family is extremely saddened by the death of Adam. We ask for privacy as we grieve his loss," the Harrisons said in a statement to TMZ.

A representative for the docu-series said Adam suffered a fatal drug overdose, but details about the circumstances of his death were not disclosed.
