Mother and Son Found Dead Inside Apartment; Older Son Missing

LAS VEGAS -- Henderson Police are investigating the deaths of a 40-year-old woman and her 10-year-old son found slain in their apartment Friday. 

Investigators said police were doing a welfare check and discovered the mother's 16-year-old son was not in the apartment and is considered missing.

The Summit Apartments is located on the 11000 block of S. Eastern Avenue near Sunridge Heights Parkway. Police also said the 10-year-old and 16-year-old sons did not show up to school.

The woman's teen son, Adrian Navarro, has not been located and is considered missing with police searching for the boy.

The teen is not considered a suspect at this time.

Detectives are following up on leads in the case but at this time no suspect or motive has been identified.

There have been no calls for service to the family's apartment prior to a friend and a relative calling for a welfare check.

A friend and a relative started to worry about the woman after she did not show up to work on Wednesday and was not returning calls. Detectives discovered that the boys also missed school this week starting on Wednesday.
