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

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.

"Police can confirm, the body of the child was located 120 metres from the family found dead on Jarra Jarra Road yesterday", NT Police said in a statement.

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

It's thought the trio may have died from exposure after they were stranded near Willowra on Wednesday, ABC News reported.

Police do not believe the deaths are suspicious, and food and water were found at the scene.

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.

'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.

Family members have not yet authorised the released of the child's name, but told police community members in Ali Curung, Ti Tree and Willowra, who "are aware of his particulars".

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

Nobbs said police still couldn't rule out the possibility that there had been other passengers in the auto when it broke down. "He is quite distraught about what he has found", said Supt Jody Nobbs.

Police are calling on anyone with information in relation to the whereabouts of the child to contact them immediately on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000.

Three people have died and a boy is missing after their vehicle broke down in outback Australia, police say.
