Possible drowning reported on Lake Lanier
Second in less than a week
Drowning Vanns Tavern
Officials are searching the lake in an area of deep water off the shore of Vann's Tavern Park.

LAKE LANIER - Divers from both Forsyth and Hall Counties, along with other emergency crews are responding to a report of a possible drowning on Lake Lanier. 

Forsyth County Fire Investigator Jeff Hundley said the incident was reported to be about 300 yards off shore near Vann's Tavern Park, in water just over 125 feet deep.  Hundley said he believed there were witnesses who saw the victim, identified as an adult male, in the water before he went under.  Hundley said that Hall County divers are currently in the water searching for the victim, and Forsyth divers are on the scene to assist if needed.  

This drowning is less than a week after the last one, which also happened on the north side of the lake, near Three Sisters Island.  Officials searched for that victim for most of the week, but were unable to locate that victim.
