HALL COUNTY — Authorities have recovered the body of a boater who had been missing since April 30.

The Department of Natural Resources said another boater in the area called 911 about 10 a.m. Monday to report a body in the water just south of Cocktail Cove in Lake Lanier.

It was later confirmed to be the body of Jerry Kornmeier, 57, of Snellville, who had been missing since April 30.

Authorities had scaled back their search for his body late last week.

Authorities were first called to the area at 5 p.m. April 30. They found Kornmeier’s boat empty and drifting in open water outside Cocktail Cove.
