LEHI, Utah (AP) -- A 20-month old girl who drowned Sunday when she wandered out of her grandparents' home and fell into a small creek has been identified as Karlie Blair Beckstead.

The girl was found face down in the creek within about five minutes after she was noticed gone. Attempts to resuscitate her failed.

She was about 150 to 200 yards downstream from the home, police Sgt. Jeff Swenson said.
