A family member made a grim discovery Saturday when they found a missing man drowned in Lake Lanier.

Deputies said Christopher Johnson, 27, had been missing since Tuesday night around 7:30 p.m.

Johnson’s body was found by a relative at about 2:45 p.m. Saturday afternoon near a family dock in Lake Lanier.

Investigators said evidence suggested Johnson went fishing there.

Authorities do not suspect foul play.

The Hall Sheriff’s Office said Johnson had a history of medical issues that could explain how he ended up in the lake.
