Prayers sought as Prince family searches for 13-year-old
Boy feared drowned in Monday boating accident that killed his brother, 9
A Department of Natural Resources boat operates a sonar system to show detail under the waters of Lake Lanier Wednesday morning as recovery teams search for a teen missing after a boat collision Monday night.
As authorities continue to search for Griffin Prince, 13, who is feared drowned after a Monday boating accident that killed his 9-year-old brother Jake, those who know the family are asking for prayers. The two boys, along with their father, Michael, their mother and nine others were in a pontoon boat Monday night when it collided with a 21- to 22-foot center console fishing boat in the Shoal Creek area of Lake Lanier near Buford Dam. The fishing boat struck the pontoon “basically head-on,” Hall County Fire Chief David Kimbrell said.
