Recovery efforts continue for a missing Wynne police officer.

Nick Swink, 24, was last seen Friday at the St. Francis Bay near the county line of Cross and St. Francis counties, according to authorities.

Volunteers picked back up the search early Monday morning.

The young officer worked for the Wynne Police Department for four years and was scheduled to start work next week as a deputy with the Cross County Sheriff's Department, according to Cross County Sheriff J.R. Smith.

Officials said Swink was with friends and not on duty when he fell in the water.

Swink's cousin Janie Crosby was devastated when she arrived at the scene.

"I just want to find him," Crosby said. "The family is just praying that we have a miracle." 

Although Channel 7 reached out to Smith and other officials Monday, their offices said they are focused on the search and are not giving interviews or updates until at least later Monday evening.

The investigation is ongoing.
