Searching for answers: Friends remember victims of boat crash
A Cobb County Underwater Search and Recovery Team diver brings oxygen tanks to the diving crew’s boat Thursday at the launch site off Buford Dam Road.
Friends and strangers alike offered their support Thursday for a grieving Buford family, even as crews continued to search a third day for 13-year-old Griffin Prince, who has been missing since Monday’s fatal boat crash. Griffin’s 9-year-old brother, Jake, died on the scene of the crash, which involved a 21- to 22-foot center console fishing boat and a 17-person pontoon boat carrying 13 passengers on Lake Lanier. The fishing boat struck the pontoon practically head-on in the Shoal Creek area of the lake near Buford Dam, according to authorities.
