Gregg County authorities tell FOX 51, this all started with a missing child call at around 6:45 Monday night.
By 8:15, a deputy had found the 4-year-old child's body on the side of the road off of State Highway 149 (Younger Road).
A store clerk told authorities that a man and woman stopped at a gas station with a brand new vehicle and said they were upset because they had just hit a deer and damaged their vehicle.
DPS says if they truly thought they hit a deer, they will not press charges against them.
But they are looking for the vehicle to question the people.
GREGG COUNTY IS LOOKING FOR: A Dark color, possibly silver Nissan truck. 4 door with paper tags (meaning it is most likely a new purchase) It is driven by a white man in his 30's wearing a blue "oil field" type uniform with patches and name tags. He was also wearing a brown and white ball cap and had a beard. A white female was also with him. She has brown, curly hair. Authorities tell us the damage to the vehicle will be on the right side near the headlight.
