The body of a child has been found following an extensive land and air search in a remote part of Central Australia.

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

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 auto yesterday.

However, the remains have not been formally identified.

"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 said in a statement.

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

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

The search for a young boy who was believed to have been with the group and not found among the dead. "This is a tragic situation from a police perspective", Superintendent Jody Nobbs told a news conference Thursday.

'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.

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

"This does serve unfortunately as a timely reminder for anybody traveling on the Northern Territory roads to ensure that, when you do travel, your vehicle is in a fit state to travel".

The details of the people who died have also not been released.

Nobbs said there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding the deaths.
