Authorities confirm body is that of missing California girl.

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (AP) — A body found in a trash bin at a Northern California housing complex is that of an 8-year-old girl who disappeared as she rode her scooter in the center’s courtyard, authorities confirmed Tuesday. The search for Madyson Middleton ended Monday night when a detective discovered the body at the artist community and housing center in Santa Cruz where the girl lived with her mother. A 15-year-old boy who lives in the complex was arrested around the same time the body was found and is being questioned on suspicion of homicide, Vogel said. Jordan walked the edges of the courtyard, and police twice conducted a door-to-door search of the entire complex, as well as a homeless resource center and shelter across the street.

Authorities didn’t send volunteers onto adjacent hiking and biking trails for fear of disturbing potential evidence, but hundreds of volunteers showed up and looked for her in neighborhoods and streets.
