A Forsyth County teen who was reported missing Tuesday evening was found dead in Lake Lanier early Wednesday afternoon, Dawson County officials recently announced.

Katie Scott Landrum, 19, was recovered from the lake near the Athens Boat Club shortly after noon Oct. 11 after having been reported missing around 9:35 p.m. Tuesday evening, according to Dawson County Sheriff Jeff Johnson

She had last been seen leaving her Forsyth County residence for a friend’s house near the Dawson County boat club.

According to Jennifer Caracciolo, spokeswoman for Forsyth County Schools, Landrum had attended several county schools, including Settles Bridge Elementary School, Vickery Creek Elementary School, Whitlow Elementary School, Lakeside Middle School and South Forsyth High School.

Johnson told the Forsyth County News the incident is under investigation but that he “cannot say foul play is suspected.”

“There’s nothing there to lead us there at that time,” he said. “It’s just a sad, sad unfortunate situation.”
