Police made a gruesome discovery of a woman’s body in the trunk of a missing family’s car that was discovered in southern California.

The vehicle, a Honda Accord belonging to Daniel and Erica Perez, who went missing along with their four sons aged from 6 to 11, was located just half a mile from their home in Montebello, police said.

Capt Luis Lopez only elaborated that a woman’s body was discovered, however, he did not reveal what the deceased woman’s name is or how she died.

Lopez called the discovery ‘alarming’, adding: ‘We are concerned for their safety’.

He said: ‘At this point, Mr. Perez is considered a person of interest, so if he’s seen or the children are seen we urged everybody to call the police department.’

The family was last seen on Friday and neither parent have answered their phone.

Police have now issued an Amber Alert for a 2014 black Toyota Camry with California license plate 7FDS891 connected to the family.

Family members told police that the couple’s marriage was unstable and there was a history of domestic violence, police said.

They made a public plea for the safe return of the children – Jordan, 11, Jaiden, 9, Tristan, 8, and Alex, 6.
