NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Family members say the bodies of a woman and a young child that were found in the grass along Interstate 10 in New Orleans have been identified and are the pair who had been reported missing since Saturday.

The family tells WWL-TV (https://bit.ly/1uF17Cx ) the deceased are 29-year-old Tracy Jefferson and 4-year-old Richard Gordon III.

A man cutting grass found the bodies Monday. Police say the bodies were highly decomposed and appeared to have been in the location for several days.

The family says the woman and child had been missing since a multi-car accident on I-10 near Louisa Saturday morning. Police confirm there was a wreck in the area that day and are looking into whether the woman and child found dead were involved.
