A body has been found during a desperate search for a 25-year-old man who was swept away by a strong current in crocodile infested waters.

John Young, from Kununurra, went for an early swim with a friend after a night out at 4.45am on Sunday and did not surface after being sucked underwater at Ivanhoe Crossing.

His friend raised the alarm at 5am and police have been searching the river banks armed with rifles for more than 30 hours.

Just after 1pm on Monday, police revealed they had found the body of a deceased male five kilometres from where Mr Young vanished.
