DNR confirms identity of body found in Lanier
By The Associated Press
ATLANTA - State officials confirmed Monday that a body pulled from Lake Lanier is that of a fisherman who had been missing since Feb. 11.
The Georgia Department of Natural Resources said that the body found near Mary Alice Park Sunday morning is that of 47-year-old George "Marty" Counts of Tucker.
Counts was an avid fisherman and was believed to be operating his boat last month when it was spotted going in circles with no one aboard. 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.
