CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The FBI says authorities have arrested a man in connection with the kidnapping of a Wyoming girl.

The agency says in a statement Sunday evening that the man was arrested in Belgrade, Mont. The man's identity and details of the arrest were not released.

Police say a man lured the 11-year-old girl from the town of Cody into his SUV last Monday by claiming he needed help finding a missing puppy. A group of hunters found the girl outside the town several hours later.

Officials will hold a news conference Monday morning in Cody to discuss the case.
