Crews Resume Search For 13-Year-Old In Lake

ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) –  Crews have resumed their search for 13-year-old Griffin Prince, who disappeared in Lake Lanier after a fishing boat rammed a pontoon boat.

Authorities early Wednesday released the boy’s identity and said he and his family are from Buford. They continued to search for him Wednesday.

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.

The boats collided between Lake Lanier Islands and Buford Dam.
