TUOLUMNE COUNTY -- Authorities located the car associated with an Amber Alert over the weekend out of Merced County and two bodies were discovered nearby.

Officials said 2-year-old John Weir was abducted by his father, Steven Weir, Saturday afternoon.

At the time, law enforcement officials considered Steven armed and dangerous.

The red Hyundai sedan was found late Sunday in a remote area near the Sand Flat Campground along Clark Fork Road, nearly two and a half hours away from where the initial missing persons report went out.

Two people were found dead near the car, but officials said their identities were not known.

This is a developing story.
