Peters was last seen fishing Tuesday evening near Lazy Days Marina off Lanier Islands Parkway, Wilbanks said. Family members reported him missing after he didn’t return home.
Searchers found Peters’ car as well as some of his personal items on a dock. His body was found adjacent to that dock in about seven feet of water.
Foul play is not suspected at this time, Wilbanks said.
Peters’ body was sent to the DeKalb County Medical Examiner’s office for an autopsy.
