A Gainesville man's body was discovered in Lake Lanier on Monday, according to officials with the Hall County Sheriff's Office.

A press release from the agency said two people were walking on a trail on Kensington Alley inside the MAA Lake Lanier apartment complex off Dawsonville Highway. The two people spotted the body in the water at about 7:45 p.m and called 911.

The victim, Bradley Howell Taylor, 28, was fishing on the bank of the lake and somehow slipped into the water, according to investigators. Taylor's fishing equipment was found at the scene. His driver's license was found on his person.

Investigators do not believe the death was the result of any foul play, but Taylor's body has been sent for an autopsy to determine his exact cause of death.

Taylor's family has been notified of his death.
