ROSWELL, GA (WXIA) - The bodies of a man and a child were found by Roswell police as they searched for a missing boy Friday morning.

Roswell police spokeswoman Lisa Holland said the bodies were found about half a mile from the Old Holcomb Bridge Way apartment complex where 4-year-old Jesus Dominguez was taken Thursday afternoon.

Dominguez was discovered missing from the apartment around 4:30 p.m. Authorities discovered Dominguez's mother unresponsive and transported her to a local medical center. She is listed in serious condition. Holland said she'd been badly beaten.

Investigators believe the little boy was taken by his father, Carlos Dominguez.

Investigators have not confirmed whether the bodies belong to the father and son. Holland said the two appear to have been killed in a murder-suicide.
