CLAYTON, N.J. -- The uncle of a missing New Jersey girl is confirming that the 12-year-olds body was found in a home's recycling container.
Paul Spadafora thanked the community for helping to search for Autumn Pasquale.
Officials say the body was found in a recycling bin at a home in Clayton around 10 p.m. Monday.
That was about 48 hours after her family reported her missing and two hours after community members gathered blocks away for a candlelight vigil filled with both tears and hope.
No arrests have been announced in the case.
