LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities are seeking the public's help to find a 15-year-old girl believed to be with her mother and a man who investigators say are suspects in a Southern California homicide investigation.

Los Angeles County sheriff's officials say Alora Benitez was last seen Wednesday morning with the two adults in Torrance in a white 2013 BMW sedan.

The Los Angeles Times reports Alora's mother and her male companion are suspected in the death of a man whose body was found inside a parked car in Carson. 

The 4-door BMW had the Nevada license plate "MARIMAR," although authorities caution the plate may have been replaced.

Officials say the pair, who have not been identified by name, should be considered armed and dangerous.
