ATLANTA — Authorities are continuing a search for the body of a 28-year-old man, who apparently drowned after falling from a dock into Lake Lanier.

The Times reports that crews plan to resume their search Monday morning.

Hall County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Nicole Bailes said the man struck his head in a fall Sunday and never resurfaced from the lake. The accident happened at Sunset Cove.

Bailes tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that alcohol may have contributed to the accident.

Authorities were sending sonar equipment from south Georgia to assist in the search. Divers from the sheriff's office and the Department of Natural Resources plan to use the sonar equipment to help locate the victim.
