Deputies say the mother was outside with Kaleb Kennedy and another sibling. The mother says she went inside to move laundry into the dryer, and when she came back she couldn't find the 15-month-old.

A deputy found the toddler in the Pelican River about 30 minutes later, downstream from the home. Kaleb was rushed to a hospital and was declared dead about 3 p.m.
