MACON, Ga. (AP) — Authorities in Putnam County say the body of a man who frequently canoes has been pulled from Lake Sinclair.
Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills tells news outlets that 53-year-old Robert Steven Orr was recovered from the water Tuesday morning.
Witnesses tell authorities that Orr was last seen around 3:30 p.m. Monday at Oconee Springs Park. They say he was intoxicated and disorderly. The sheriff’s office later found his empty canoe, sunglasses and a cooler of mostly empty beer cans.
The man’s body surfaced not far from where his personal effects were found. Sills believes alcohol was a factor in the possible drowning.
