The collision reportedly happened in the area of Six-Mile-Creek on Lake Lanier.
Law enforcement officials with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources located and retrieved the body of 34-year-old Yakov Shteyman near north Forsyth's Six Mile Creek around 7:30 Tuesday night, according to several officials familiar with the investigation. Shteyman went missing around 8:30 p.m. Monday, April 10 after his Jet Ski collided with a bass boat near Charleston Park on Lake Lanier, which is located almost directly across from Six Mile Creek. While Forsyth officials initially responded Monday, the DNR's CIRT unit took over the investigation beginning mid-morning Tuesday, ultimately finding the man in about 65 feet of water.
