After attaching the boat to the mooring, Shields got into the water to swim to shore, but never made it.

It's reported that Shields was about 50 yards away from his camp when he went under the water and never resurfaced.

Because of the lack of cell phone coverage in the area, WABI reports that Shields' wife and father-in-law had to get in a car and drive 17 miles to get to a landline and call for help.

After calling for help, officials were able to respond and recover the body of the 54-year-old man at about 6:30 on Monday night, WABI reports.
