Local authorities have recovered the body of a female that may have washed ashore from Lake Lanier at Two Mile Creek in east Forsyth on Friday afternoon.

According to Cpl. Jenny Belafi of the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office, the body was reported by boaters at about 11:45 after it was seen partially submerged in water near Vanns Tavern and Bethel Park. 

The recovered body was found in an advanced state of decomposition, reports say.  

Belafi said that the body is in route to the Georgia Bureau of Investigations Crime Lab for further investigation, but at this point, they can not comment on the identity of the female or how she died. She said they believe that more info will be released sometime next week. 

On Saturday afternoon, Forsyth County Sheriff Ron Freeman told the FCN that an autopsy of the woman had been completed, but they are waiting on more information. 

The scene was handled by the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office and the Forsyth County Fire Department. Belafi said that investigators from Hall County and the Department of Natural Resource were on scene, but did not take part in the investigation.
