McCoy went missing.

Law enforcement said McCoy's body had traveled more than 6 miles down the Salmon from the scene of the accident.

ORIGINAL POST: April 24, 3:30 p.m.

Idaho faves Mickey and the Motorcars are scheduled to play at the Knitting Factory in Boise on Friday, April 27. But a report breaking from KIVI-TV says that may not happen as the band's bassist, Mark McCoy, has been confirmed as the rafter who went missing on the Salmon River over the weekend.

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.

The band's publicist has confirmed the report.
