Micky and the Motorcars bassist confirmed as rafter who went missing on the Salmon River over the weekend
Mark McCoy of the Stanley, Idaho and Austin, Texas band Micky and the Motorcars is the man who was thrown into the Salmon River after the raft he was in struck a partially submerged log over the weekend.
The band's publicist confirmed McCoy is the missing rafter.
Steven Herrett told Custer County officials that he and Mark McCoy of Stanley entered the river late Saturday to go fishing. KIFI-TV reports the raft hit a log and forced the men into the swift-moving water.
Herrett was able to reach the shore, but he could not locate McCoy. Herrett's dog also is missing.
Sheriff's Deputy Justin Mitchell was called at about 10 p.m. Saturday. The county search and rescue crew along with other search crews, deputies, river rafting guides and Stanley residents joined the search Sunday.
The band is set to play at the Knitting Factory in Boise on Friday.
