The man told police that 26-year-old Brianna Monroe sent a text indicating that she was going to kill the child and herself.

Monroe’s family members were trying to reach her, but their calls were going unanswered, officials said.

Authorities issued a Critical Missing alert and started searching for Monroe and her toddler, Giavon August.

During the search, Monroe’s family reportedly tracked her phone to Beaumont Municipal Airport, and a cousin discovered her vehicle and the mother and son's bodies less than a mile away at a Beaumont park, KBMT reported.
