GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Forsyth County authorities say will continuing searching Lake Lanier for a missing partygoer, but don’t plan to send any more divers under water.

Authorities have been searching for the last of three people they say ran from a deputy who broke up an unauthorized party at a park near Lake Lanier.

County fire Chief Jason Shivers tells The Forsyth News (https://bit.ly/1AU1IFz) that searchers have scanned a cove of Lake Lanier with sonar and will continue those efforts. He said they don’t expect to do any more diving unless something more turns up.

Shivers said a deputy patrolling an area near Two Mile Creek Park found a group of about 20 teens and young adults early Tuesday morning. Authorities say some were detained but the deputy heard others jump in the water.
