PAGE, Ariz. (AP) -- A three-year-old boy drowned near his family's houseboat in Lake Powell.

A group aboard the boat in Halls Creek Bay said the child, whose name wasn't released, had last been on the shoreline but then disappeared.

After they notified Wednesday evening, authorities began a search. The body was found in four feet of water a few hours later.

The boy, who was attending a family reunion, wasn't wearing a life jacket.
