Atlanta man identified as victim of Friday boating incident on Lanier

Authorities identified the victim of a boating incident Friday on Lake Lanier as Department of Natural Resources personnel continue to search for the body.

Troy Landers Keijuan Harden, 29, of Atlanta, went into the water and did not resurface.

“Rangers continue to search for Mr. Harden in the center of the channel between Aqualand Marina and Port Royal Marina,” DNR spokesman Mark McKinnon wrote in an email.

The 125-foot depth of water and the heavy timber in the area is making it difficult for rangers to locate the man with sonar, McKinnon said.

“The search efforts are primarily being conducted in the evenings and overnight due to heavy boat traffic during the day,” he wrote.
