BULLFROG, Utah (AP) -- Authorities using an underwater device searched a Lake Powell marina Tuesday for a 3-year-old girl who disappeared while playing chase with a brother.

The girl probably fell off a dock Monday near her family's houseboat at the Bullfrog marina in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, spokeswoman Marianne Karraker said.

"The search is concentrated on a finger or arm of the marina," she said. "The dogs did hit on her scent. They followed it to the end of the dock and into the water."

Kamberlie Binks of South Jordan, a Salt Lake City suburb, was not wearing a life jacket. Her disappearance was reported around 12:15 p.m. MDT Monday.

The underwater device, with a camera and light, is about the size of a portable generator.

"It is operated by a person on a boat. We call it our robot," Karraker said. "It has an arm on it to retrieve bodies."
