Two teenage parents and their young son have been found dead after abandoning a broken-down vehicle in a remote part of the Outback - as a desperate search begins for a missing 12-year-old who was travelling them.

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

The child's body was found 120 metres from the three other people found dead on Jarra Jarra Road.

Initially located were a 19-year-old man, a 19-year-old woman and a three-year-old boy, described as a young family.

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.

The alarm was raised by a person at Willowra Health Clinic just before 12.30pm on Wednesday and authorities attended the scene on Jarra Jarra Access rd - 62 kilometres away from Willowra - later that same day.

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

First reports to police on Wednesday indicated the vehicle had crashed but once investigators arrived it was clear there had not been a crash.

Family members have not authorised the release of the child's name, however have advised Police that members in the surrounding communities of Ali Curung, Ti Tree and Willowra are aware of his particulars. "He's quite distraught about what he's found", he said.

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

Police have called for anyone with information on the child's whereabouts to contact them immediately.

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