Crews Resume Search for Missing 13-Year-Old in Lake Lanier

BUFORD, Ga. (AP) -- Crew members are continuing their search for 13-year-old Griffin Prince, who disappeared in Lake Lanier after a fishing boat rammed a pontoon boat.
Boats equipped with sonar technology were searching Thursday for Griffin's body in an area between Buford Dam and Lake Lanier Islands.
The boy and his family are from Buford. Griffin's brother, 9-year-old Jake Prince, died at the scene of the Monday night collision, which injured three other passengers on the vessel.
A 44-year-old boater, Paul J. Bennett of Cumming, is accused of boating under the influence. He was arrested hours after the crash at Bald Ridge Marina. A home number for Bennett couldn't be located, and it wasn't known whether he has an attorney.
