(CNN) -- A 15-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with the suspected death of an 8-year-old girl after a body was found in a dumpster in the coastal California city of Santa Cruz, police said.

A body believed to be that of Madyson Middleton was found Monday in a dumpster on the grounds of the apartment complex where she lived, a day after she was reported missing, Santa Cruz police Chief Kevin Vogel said Monday night.

Madyson was last seen riding a Razor scooter near her apartment home Sunday, police said.

Vogel said a 15-year-old boy who lives at the apartment complex was arrested in connection with the case.

The California Highway Patrol had issued a statewide bulletin for Madyson after she was reported missing, CNN affiliate KGO reported.
