SAPD Chief William McManus gave few details during a press conference Tuesday night. He confirmed a woman and a man had been found dead in a car and said police "believe" the bodies to be that of Soto and Guerra. He refused to confirm the identity of the deceased.

McManus called the crime scene "complex" and "perplexing." He said detectives are looking at the scene as a possible murder.

The Texas Department of Public Safety issued a CLEAR Alert on Monday for Soto who was last seen at her apartment complex in Leon Valley on Friday. 


"The Leon Valley Police Department has been notified of the disappearance of Savannah Nicole Soto, who was reported missing by her family. Ms. Soto, who is pregnant and has passed her delivery date, has caused significant concern among her family members after missing an essential medical appointment," the alert read.

Police were searching for a 2013 Kia Optima. McManus confirmed Tuesday night that the two bodies were found in the Kia Optima connected to Soto's disappearance. He said the family was alerted to the car at the apartment complex and called police.

McManus said the bodies had possibly been in the car for three to four days.

When asked if a weapon was found in the car, McManus said police were unsure as they had not yet moved the bodies from the scene.

It is unclear how Soto and Guerra died. No update was given on the status of Soto's baby.
