Child missing after three people found dead in outback Australia

Police say the three people found dead may have got caught out in extreme weather

The body of a child has been found following an extensive land and air search in a remote part of Central Australia.

A MAJOR land and air search is now underway for a child after three people were found dead in a remote area in the Northern Territory.

Police said the child's body was located 120 metres away from a family of three who were found dead yesterday near an abandoned vehicle on the outskirts of the community of Willowra, 300 kilometres north-west of Alice Springs.

"The body of the child was located 120 metres from the family, found dead on Jarra Jarra Road yesterday."
They said the three people may have died from exposure a couple of days ago and not as a result of the crash.

Further inquiries indicate it is possible another child, the 12-year-old boy, was a passenger in the auto.

Supt Nobbs said the man who made the initial report to the health clinic in Willowra would be interviewed.

"At this point, we hold grave concerns for the welfare of this child", superintendent Jody Nobbs told reporters Thursday.

"One of the avenues we are looking at is that they have walked off from a vehicle in extreme weather and may have got caught out", superintendent Shaun Gill told the Australian broadcaster ABC.

"Initially we thought it was the result of a vehicle crash, however we're confident it's not".

Family members have not authorised the release of the boy's name but say people living in the surrounding communities of Ali Curung, Ti Tree and Willowra are aware of his identity.

"This does serve unfortunately as a timely reminder for anybody traveling on the Northern Territory roads to ensure that, when you do travel, your vehicle is in a fit state to travel".

Police said the deaths were not being treated as suspicious.
