SUWANEE, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say a 61-year-old man whose body was found in the Chattahoochee River over the weekend may have fallen out of his boat in a treacherous section of the river.

WSB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Q4I6Dy) fishermen on Saturday afternoon spotted a man’s body in about four to five feet of water near the border between Forsyth and Fulton counties. Authorities identified the man as Robert Allen Hancock of Lawrenceville.

Detectives told the television station the initial investigation shows no signs of foul play, and they believe Hancock may have fallen from his boat.

An autopsy is to be conducted at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Crime Lab. The investigation is ongoing.
