CLAYTON, N.J. – Police have found a bicycle matching one a New Jersey girl was riding the day she disappeared.
The bike was taken Tuesday from a property in the town of Clayton where 12-year-old Autumn Pasquale's (pas-KWAHL-eez) body was found in a recycling container the night before.
The girl had left her family's home on a white BMX bike Saturday afternoon.
Neighbors tell The Associated Press there is a boy in the neighborhood known to steal bikes.
Authorities have not said how the girl died, and there have not been any arrests.
