No body was found in Lake Lanier after a dive was conducted following a possible spotting late Sunday afternoon at Clarks Bridge Park in Gainesville.

Hall County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. Stephen Wilbanks said the Hall County dive team investigated the area, which was about 25-30 feet deep, Monday morning but found only tree debris.

On Sunday, a resident reported what was thought to be a body about 30 yards offshore, but it disappeared before anyone could respond to the call.

Wilbanks said no one has been reported missing, and no one on shore at the time saw a person go into the lake and not come out.
