By Martin Dotson Staff
FORSYTH COUNTY - A body pulled from Lake Lanier in Forsyth County may be that of a boater missing for more than a month.
Investigators in Forsyth County pulled the body from the water near Mary Alice Park. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the identity will be determined by the Forsyth County Coroner's office.
Investigators say the body may be that of 47 year old George ``Marty'' Counts of Tucker, who disappeared Feb. 11
Counts was an avid fisherman and was believed to be operating his boat that evening when it was spotted going in circles with no one aboard, the state Department of Natural Resources previously said. The boat ran out of gas and was on the bank when rangers arrived.
The initial search for Counts lasted several days and involved various agencies.
