Man held after name found in slain girl's computer

DANBURY, Connecticut (CNN) -- The body of a 13-year-old girl missing since Friday has been found, and the FBI has arrested a Brazilian national living in Connecticut who allegedly met the girl on the Internet, the agency said Monday.

Christina Long's body was found Monday, an FBI spokeswoman said. The girl had been missing since Friday evening, when she was seen at Danbury Fair Mall.

Saul Dos Reis, 25, was arrested early Sunday and pointed investigators to the body, found in a remote area of Greenwich, Connecticut, the spokeswoman said. The FBI contacted Dos Reis after agents found his name on the girl's computer, she said.

Authorities said it is too early to say what charges might be filed against Dos Reis.
