LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities say a 40-year-old woman and her 10-year-old son have been found slain in Henderson, and police are looking for her missing 16-year-old son.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the bodies were discovered in their apartment at noon Friday.

Henderson police spokesman Keith Paul declined to name the victims or say how they died. Autopsies will be conducted by the Clark County coroner’s office.

The paper identified the missing son as Adrian Navaro. Paul says he is not considered a suspect, but asks anyone with knowledge of his whereabouts to contact authorities.

Police discovered the deaths after local schools in Henderson reported both boys had been missing since Wednesday. And Paul says employees at the mother’s workplace were worried after she did not show up for her job.
