The body of a Conyers man has been found in Lake Lanier, the Hall County Sheriff's Office reported.

At around 9:30 Sunday morning, deputies responded to a report of a body in the water at Aqualand Marina.

Police say they've identified the body as 58-year-old Conyers resident John Lawrence Stanford.

According to police, Stanford had been staying on a friend's boat. He was last seen yesterday by other people in the area. The owner of the boat was the one who discovered the body.
