ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - The body of a 57-year-old man who went missing May 22 has been found in Lake Lanier, according to Hall County police.

Terry Daugherty was last seen around 9 p.m. May 22 near the Sunrise Cove Marina where he keeps his boat. His neighbors filed a report May 23, which was followed by a BOLO after an initial search revealed no evidence of his whereabouts.

The Sheriff’s Office’s Dive Team, Hall County Fire Rescue and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources used side scan sonar to locate Daugherty’s body near where his boat was moored.

Hall County Fire Rescue then used an underwater drone to recover the body.

A cause of death has not been determined.
