NT police search for missing boy after three found dead near vehicle

NT Police have located the body of a child following an extensive land and air search in central Australia.


The bodies of two adults, both 19, and their three-year-old son were found near a remote road about 1,000km (620 miles) south of Darwin on Wednesday.

The bodies of a young couple. both aged 19, and their three-year-old son were found in the Northern Territory on Wednesday 4.5km away from their broken-down vehicle.

Superintendent Nobbs has said earlier that the four occupants of the vehicle were seen leaving Willowra on November 2 and were bound for nearby Yarra Yarra.

Northern Territory Police had been conducting a land and air search of the area after other family members told them the older boy might have been a passenger.

An air and land search was conducted Thursday to look for a 12-year-old boy who Nobbs said was believed to have been in the vehicle with the family.
