  • NT police search for missing boy after three found dead near car

The bodies of a 19-year-old man, a 19-year-old woman and a three-year-old boy, described as a young family, were found late on Wednesday near Willowra, about 300km north-west of Alice Springs.

The four young people found dead in remote central Australia after their auto broke down likely died due to heat and a lack of food and water, Northern Territory police say.

The teenage parents left morsels of food and water at their abandoned vehicle and attempted to find help in a community 18km away.

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.

Police were alerted to the deaths after a man raised the alarm at the Willowra Health Clinic just before 12.30pm on Wednesday.

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 auto with the family.

Police will prepare a report for the coroner while they scour the area.

"(Police) identified that it wasn't a fatal motor vehicle accident as reported.

The search was set to continue until police were able to completely rule out that there weren't other people in the vehicle.

Southern Desert Division Superintendent Jody Nobbs said the possibility there were more passengers in the vehicle has not been ruled out.

'One of the avenues of inquiry that we're looking at is if people walked away from a broken down vehicle and may have suffered as result of that, ' duty superintendent Shaun GIll said on Thursday.

Nobbs said there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding the deaths.

"He will be a critical part of the investigation".

'Also make sure someone is aware of what your travel itinerary is - when you intend to leave, arrive and your anticipated routes'.

Police are calling on anyone with information to contact them immediately on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000.
