An urgent search got underway today for a 12-year-old boy after three people were found dead near a broken down vehicle in central Australia.

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

Northern Territory Police and Emergency Services are doing land and air searches of the Willowra area, 300km northwest of Alice Springs, after the group was found dead near their broken down vehicle yesterday.

At the scene police found the bodies of a 19-year-old man, a 19-year-old woman and a three-year-old boy.

The group was last seen leaving Willowra, a small community, on Friday.

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

Nobbs said police still couldn't rule out the possibility that there had been other passengers in the vehicle when it broke down.

Their deaths are not considered suspicious.

The three bodies discovered on Wednesday were those of a young family, but police have not said if the 12-year-old boy, who was the subject of land and air searches, was also related.

According to police, family members have been told about the child's disappearance but have not authorized the release of his name.

"This is a tragic situation and our thoughts remain with the families affected by this incident".

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

Duty Superintendent Shaun Gil told ABC Radio on Thursday investigators originally thought the incident was the result of a auto crash, but then realised that was not the case.

"He will be a critical part of the investigation. He is quite distraught about what he has found", said Supt Jody Nobbs.

Police urged anyone with information about the child's whereabouts to contact them immediately.
