CUMMING — The body of a man was found Monday morning on the Lake Lanier shoreline at Mary Alice Park, authorities said.
Park visitors apparently saw the body as they were walking along the beach, according to Robin Regan, a spokesman for the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation plans to perform an autopsy Tuesday morning, Regan said, while investigators continue to pursue the man’s identity.
The sheriff’s office and the Forsyth County Fire Department were on scene to gather more information before and after the sheriff's marine patrol unit removed the body from the water.
Regan said investigators are following up some leads, and the park remains closed while the process continues.
It was not immediately clear if foul play is suspected.
