A rescue mission has now become a recovery mission along the banks of the Kanawha River.
It's been more than 24 hours since a boat and barge collided near Kanawha City. A man and woman inside the boat swam safely to shore, but a third person is still missing.
Family and friends have been waiting all day watching crews search the river. So far they haven't found any signs of the missing boater.
No one on the boat was wearing a life jacket.
