Emergency officials said they are currently looking for the victim of a reported drowning on Lake Lanier near Vanns Tavern Park.
Mark McKinnon, the public affairs officer for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, said game wardens were called to the scene of a possible drowning off the shore from the Vanns Tavern day use area on Lake Lanier at around 6:15 p.m. on Friday, June 28.
McKinnon said two individuals were rescued by the game wardens, but one person is unaccounted for.
McKinnon said sonar is being used to search the area. A decision to call the search off for the night was not made by officials as of 11:30 p.m. on Friday.
The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers posted on its Facebook page that Vanns Tavern and the immediate area of water around marker 12TM are closed due to the drowning last night and ask that people avoid the area until further notice.
