LAKE LANIER (CBS46) -

The bodies of two men who drowned on Lake Lanier have been recovered. 

Quincy Larae Finch, 35, of Gainesville was reported missing on Monday in the area of the Gainesville Marina off Dawsonville Highway, according to a spokesperson with the Hall County Fire Department.

Officials say Finch was swimming with his girlfriend when he became distressed, went under water and never reappeared. 

His body was recovered at 6:34 p.m. in 16 feet of water about 40 yards from the shoreline, according to authorities. 

Another man's body was found on Friday on the lake near Buford. Emergency crews were notified when a jet ski was seen circling the lake without anyone on it. Rescue crews later found the body of 21 year-old Bailey Dean O' Shield.

He was not wearing a life jacket.
