A search is underway for a man who went missing while swimming in Western Australia's Kimberley region.

The man in his 20s was swimming in the Ord River with a friend about 5am on Sunday at Ivanhoe Crossing near Kununurra, when he was caught in a current and taken downstream.

The search will continue until last light on Sunday.

If he is not found by then the area will be monitored overnight before the search resumes at first light on Monday.

Dangers from crocodiles in the area and rapid water flow will limit an overnight search, police say.
