Northern Territory Police have located the body of a child following an extensive land and air search in the Willowra district today.

A formal identification of the child is yet to be undertaken and as such, police are unable to confirm it is the body of the 12-year-old boy believed to be a passenger in the vehicle and reported missing late last night.

Police can confirm, the body of the child was located 120mtrs from the family found dead on Jarra Jarra Road yesterday.

Southern Desert Division Superintendent Jody Nobbs said police are yet to rule out that there may have been more passengers in the vehicle.

“Although police have no information that suggests there were other passengers in the car, we will continue a precautionary land and air search until we are satisfied that all areas of interest have been sufficiently canvassed.”
