A formal identification of the child is yet to be undertaken and police have not confirmed if it is the body of the 12-year-old boy believed to be a passenger in the vehicle.

The trip is roughly 114km, or a five-hour drive on the Jarra Jarra Access Rd.

In a statement Thursday, Northern Territory Police said a 19-year-old man and woman had been found, along with a three-year-old boy, next to the vehicle 350 kilometers (217 miles) northwest of Alice Springs in the Willowra district.

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

It is not known why the auto broke down but it is understood there was no mobile phone coverage for the stranded group.

Today, Superintendent Jody Nobbs said the vehicle found about 4.5 kilometres from the bodies had been seized and would be examined.

It's understood police were alerted to the deaths after a man raised the alarm at the Willowra Health Clinic just after midday.

Chris Christie Being Considered To Replace Jeff Sessions As Attorney General
Whitaker, a former USA attorney for the Southern District of Iowa, had served as Sessions's chief-of-staff since September 2017. He had also pressed to reauthorize a controversial secret domestic spying program over the Justice Department's protests.

Investigators were only able to arrive at the scene on Thursday due to flooding and the remoteness of the area.

"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", Supt Shaun Gill told the ABC.

It is believed the group may have died from exposure after leaving their broken down vehicle and not in a auto crash as was initially reported.

Their deaths are not being treated as suspicious and the authorities are investigating whether exposure to the elements may have contributed to the tragedy.

"Ensure that when you travel your vehicle is in a fit state, that you have sufficient supplies including water and a first aid kit, and that someone is aware of what your travel itinerary is, when you intend to leave, arrive and your anticipated routes", he said.

Superintendent Nobbs said the four people were last seen in Ti Tree last Friday and had left to meet family in Jarra Jarra.
