Henderson, NV (KTNV) -- Henderson Police are investigating the deaths of a mother and her son in the 11000 block of South Eastern Avenue near Sunridge Heights Parkway.

Investigators said police were called to the apartment for a welfare check when the 40-year-old woman did not show up for work. Her 9-year-old and 16-year-old sons also did not show up to school.

Officers arrived around noon on Friday and found the woman and her younger son dead. The woman's teen son, Adrian Navarro, has not been located and is considered missing. 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.

The cause of death for the woman and her son will be determined by the Clark County Coroner's Office.

Henderson Police said 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 Wednesday.

The woman's and her son's deaths are the fifth and sixth murders in Henderson this year.
