On Monday afternoon, the body of 18 month old Alleyah Janett Bell of Orangeville, Utah, was recovered from the Hall’s Crossing buoy field.

Alleyah had fallen into the water around 7:30 pm on Saturday as she played on a family houseboat. She was not wearing any type of life preserver.

The San Juan County Sheriff had requested assistance from the Summit County Sheriff, the Utah Department of Public Safety and the National Park Service.

At around 1:00 p.m. Monday, the Utah Department of Public Safety Dive Team located the child 240 feet below the surface of the water using sonar. The depth was too deep for divers therefore; the Summit County Search and Rescue deep water robot was used to recover the child’s body.

The body of the child will be transported to the Utah Medical Examiner’s Office to confirm the cause of death.
The investigation is ongoing but there is no evidence of foul play.
