WOODSTOCK, Ga. (AP) -- Authorities have identified a deceased woman who was found floating in Lake Allatoona as a Marietta woman.<br />
Officials late Sunday night identified the woman as 33-year-old Sheila Ann Carlotta.<br />
A boater found the body Sunday morning, prompting an investigation by the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office. Police estimate the body was in the water for less than a day.<br />
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that the body was located near the beach of the Kellogg Creek Day Use area.<br />
Detectives said Carlotta's family and friends told them she was swimming in the area Saturday.
The Georgia Department of Natural Resources has released statistics on boating incidents for the Memorial Day Weekend and the Gainesville area has seen the most Boating Under the Influence incidents of any major waterway in the state.
