An autopsy was performed, but police did not release the girl’s name or her cause of death. Police said the girl was unclothed but with no obvious signs of trauma.

‘‘I thought to myself, that looked like a mannequin ­— didn’t look like a human body,’’ the passerby, Eric May, told KTVU-TV.

The girl was reported missing by her guardian at a foster home in nearby Suisun City. Commander Tim Mattos of the Suisun City police said the guardian last saw her board a school bus. He said she was in class all day.
