GAINESVILLE, Ga. -- Divers from the Hall County Search and Recovery Team resume the search Monday for the body of a man who drowned near Lake Lanier Islands.

The victim, 44-year-old Jeffrey Nause of Mabelton, jumped from a sailboat into the lake for a swim just after midnight Saturday. Witnesses say Nause appeared fine and was talking to others when he simply disappeared under water.

Investigators are treating the death as accidental.

Divers searched through the weekend in water as deep as 140 feet.
