ATLANTA (AP) - Investigators in Forsyth County pulled a body from Lake Lanier near Mary Alice Park and think that it may the remains of a man missing since February.

Authorities tell FOX 5 News that the identity will be determined by the Forsyth County Coroner's office.

The body may be that of missing boater, George "Marty" Counts, who disappeared Feb. 11 on the lake, investigators said.

Counts, 47, of Tucker, was an avid fisherman and was believed to be operating his boat that evening when it was spotted going in circles with no one aboard, the state Department of Natural Resources previously said. The boat ran out of gas and was on the bank when rangers arrived.

The initial search for Counts lasted several days and involved various agencies.
