Authorities in Hall County have identified the teen whose body was pulled from Lake Lanier Sunday night.

The Gainesville Times reports that Hall County Fire Services responded to call around 9:20 p.m. Sunday. They were told 19 year-old Stephen Frederick of Peachtree Corners, had jumped from the second story of a dock and had not resurfaced.

It took the department's marine rescue team about an hour to find Frederick's body in water that's 19 feet deep.

At this time, foul play is not suspected and the victim’s body has been transported to the DeKalb County Medical Examiner’s Office for autopsy.
