WOODSTOCK, Ga. - Cherokee County authorities are searching for a 32-year-old swimmer who apparently drowned in Lake Allatoona.
County fire department spokesman Tim Cavender says the man was swimming around a boat with his wife and children aboard when he disappeared in the waters about 4:30 p.m. Saturday near the Victoria Marina.
Cavender says the water temperature was about 68 degrees.
Divers searched the waters until about 7:30 p.m. Saturday and resumed the search Sunday morning.
It was this year's fifth drowning in Lake Allatoona and the first in the Cherokee County part of the lake.
