RIVERSIDE, AL (WBRC) -

St. Clair County Undersheriff Billy Murray was still hopeful Monday afternoon saying a search for a missing boater has not yet shifted into recovery mode.

"I would just say we're in search and rescue mode right now," said Murray. "It's very slow. It's very time consuming."

Crews spent all day searching the part of Lake Logan Martin where 48-year-old Willie Cosby was last seen.

Murray says Cosby was on a boat Sunday evening, and around 7:30 he somehow fell overboard.

"Well we've just had different reports that he may have even dropped something. And been looking for it and leaned over and just fell in the water."

Cosby's wife was in the boat as well. She tried to retrieve him, but also ended up falling into the water.

"She was able to swim to shore and notified us and we have been actively searching since then," said Murray.

The search was suspended due to darkness Monday evening. They'll start back up again at 8 a.m. Tuesday.
