Suspicions against the man remain just "reasonable", although he has admitted to being in the girl's home town of Stjärnsund, 230 kilometres north west of Stockholm, on the day of her disappearance.
The suspect has a previous conviction for a rape in northern Sweden, Aftonbladet has reported.
Engla Höglund had been to football training in Stjärnsund and left her teammates to cycle the five kilometres home around 2pm on Saturday afternoon. She never turned up and her bike was found 500 metres from her home in the small town in northern central Sweden.
The search for the girl in the area around Stjärnsund was discontinued on Tuesday afternoon.
