CUMMING -- Authorities say a 9-year-old girl pulled from the Chattahoochee River has died.

They say it appears Anna Vanhorn of Peachtree City got caught up in a release of water from the Buford Dam while tubing near the Forsyth and Gwinnett County line.

Authorities got a 911 call around 4:30 p.m. Friday after Vanhorn's companions realized she wasn't with them. Rescuers searched for more than an hour before finding her body.
