BUFORD, Ga. (AP) — Department of Natural Resources rangers and Hall County Sheriff's Office deputies are set to resume a search for a man who went missing on Lake Lanier.

DNR Spokesman Mark McKinnon tells local media that 57-year-old Jerry Kornmeier was reported missing at 5 p.m. Saturday from the Cocktail Cove area of Lake Lanier. On Sunday, his boat was found adrift in open water.

McKinnon says that officials aren't sure if Kornmeier is in the water or on land. Both are being searched.

When the search resumes Monday, side scan sonar will be used.
