The body of a man who fell into Lake Lanier on Thursday while working on his boat was found Sunday morning, officials said.

Lindsey went underwater Thursday afternoon while working on his boat at Mary Alice Beach Park, McKinnon said. He slipped from the boat and did not resurface, he said.

Game wardens began searching the area shortly after Lindsey disappeared, but the search was suspended due to darkness, McKinnon said. Game wardens and divers from the Forsyth County Fire Department and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers returned each day with sonar equipment until Lindsey was found, he said.
