About David Southin's case

According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution,

The search began in the dark Tuesday morning, May 25, 2021, near the Forsyth-Gwinnett county line. According to Southin’s family and friends, David Southin had been fishing in the Suwanee area the day before and lost touch with his wife.

Rescuers from the DNR, the National Park Service and both Forsyth and Gwinnett counties joined in the effort to locate him. Initially, Gwinnett rescuers tried to use infrared technology to find the kayaker but were not successful, according to fire department spokesman Lt. Donald Strother.

About two hours into the search, divers were forced to pause the mission. Fog and darkness had hindered their ability to move any further, Strother said. They resumed at 8:30 a.m.
