On Tuesday, August 6th, rangers and other personnel began a search for a missing boater in the Chattahoochee River.
Search efforts were terminated yesterday when the body of the 32 year-old Atlanta man was spotted by a Georgia Department of Natural Resources helicopter. The body was recovered from the Chattahoochee River approximately 100 yards down stream from where he was last seen.
NPS Rangers were assisted by the following local agencies: Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Roswell Police and Fire, Sandy Springs Police and Fire, Forsyth County Fire/Swift Water/Dive Team, Clayton County Police Dive Team, Dawson County Fire K-9 Team, Johns Creek Fire Department and City of Atlanta Fire Special Operations Team.
The cooperation and operations between all agencies involved were seamless.
