CLAYTON, N.J. -

The family of Autumn Pasquale confirmed Tuesday morning a body discovered in Clayton is that of their missing 12-year-old.

The search ended around 10 p.m. Monday on East Clayton Avenue when a search team member found her body in one of the blue recycling bins placed out for pickup Tuesday morning.

The location is right around the corner from the Clayton Police Department, a quarter-mile from Delsea Drive and not far from Autumn's home.

During a morning press conference, Mayor Thomas Bianco told reporters the Clayton community would work together to get through her death.

Investigators say thus far they have no persons of interest in this case but say that all of the resources used in the search will now be part of the effort to find the person responsible for her death.

Shortly after the morning press conference, investigators released a picture of the type of bicycle Pasquale was riding when she left home Saturday. The white bicycle (pictured to the right of this story) is an Odyssey BMX.

The Associated Press reports the bike was taken by police at the property where her body was found.

Pasquale was reported missing Saturday night.

By Monday, Officials had activated a county-wide search with the Gloucester County Child Abduction Response Team.

The effort included state and local police, along with the FBI, the Camden-based U.S. Marshal's Service Task Force and the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office fugitive and high-tech crime units.
