FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A 32-year-old man drowned in Lake Lanier on June 26 near Little Ridge Park off Lanier Beach South Road in Forsyth County.

The victim was identified as Canon Trent Callender, of Lawrenceville.

Callender was a Lawrenceville Police Department police officer, who was off duty at the time.

The Forsyth County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call at 5:35 p.m. about a man swimming who went under the water and never came back up near a boat ramp at Little Ridge Park.

The Forsyth County Sheriff's Office, Hall County Fire Department and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources responded with marine units. The waters were clear and calm, which helped rescue units during their search, said Forsyth County Sheriff's Deputy Doug Rainwater.

About 7 p.m., Callender's body was found in 10 feet of water in the same area where he was last seen – 35 feet from shore.

Callender is a 2000 Duluth High School graduate who studied finance at Georgia Gwinnett Technical College, according to his Facebook page. He was with the Lawrenceville Police Department for about four years, according to Capt. Greg Vaughn.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.
