The body of a fisherman missing for more than a month was found on Sunday morning by two fishermen.

It was found in the Little Ridge area of Lake Lanier in Forsyth County at about 9:30 a.m., said Georgia Department of Natural Resources spokeswoman Melissa Cummings.

After an autopsy, the body was identified as Tucker resident George Marty Counts, 47, the man who was missing since Feb. 11, Cummings said.
