ROSWELL, GA (CBS46) -

The bodies of a missing 4-year-old boy and his father were found in a wooded area in Roswell, behind the Aspen Point Apartments off Old Holcomb Bridge Road Friday.

"The scene was characterized as there was a grave," said Roswell police Chief Rusty Grant. "I'm not sure it was a shallow grave or to what extent the child was in a grave."

Thursday afternoon, police responded to the 200 block of 260 Old Holcomb Bridge Way.

Inside an apartment, police found Sandra Rivera Ruiz alive but unresponsive.

"We believe she may have been strangled and also had facial injuries," said Grant.

Ruiz was taken to North Fulton Hospital in serious condition.

Police then discovered her 4-year-old son, Jesus Dominguez, was missing.

He was believed to be with his father, Carlos Alberto Dominguez. Police said Carlos Dominguez was the suspect in this case.

"We realized after further investigation that the child could be in danger," Grant said.

The bodies of the child and man have not been positively identified as Jesus and Carlos Dominguez, however, police said they appear to be them.

The bodies were found about a half-mile away from the home where the child was taken, in a wooded area.

Roswell police believe Carlos Dominguez killed himself after he killed his own child.

Investigators are waiting for Ruiz's condition to improve so they can talk to her.
