(KMOV) -- The Missouri Water Patrol continues the search for the body of a missing man from O'Fallon, Missouri.
 
Authorities say Cory Moore, 20, was out fishing with four friends early Tuesday morning at the Weldon Spring Boat Ramp in St. Charles County.
 
The Missouri Water Patrol says that Moore went into the water and was swept away by the five-mile per hour current.
 
Emergency crews were called in around 4:15 a.m. and the search for Moore began.
 
After a few hours, rescue crews changed the focus of the efforts to a recovery mission.
 
Crews have not recovered Moore's body yet. The recovery effort is ongoing, but the Missouri Water Patrol says it could take weeks for his body to surface.

Authorities believe alcohol was involved in this incident.
