– Country singer Craig Strickland, singer with the band Backroad Anthem, has been missing since going duck hunting in Oklahoma last weekend amidst a storm.
Strickland's friend, Chase Morland, was found dead. The two went hunting ducks during a winter storm in Oklahoma.
"In case we don't come back, @BackroadCRAIG and I are going right through Winter Storm Goliath to kill ducks in Oklahoma. #IntoTheStorm," Morland tweeted late Saturday.
Investigators are looking for Strickland in Oklahoma's Kaw Lake, where their boat apparently overturned.
Strickland's wife, Helen, said in a Twitter post on Monday, "Craig's dog Sam has been found. His boat has been confirmed as being capsized. They are still searching for Craig. Please keep praying."
Strickland's dog, who was with him, was found alive, his wife said on Tuesday.
Backroad Anthem, a sextet, formed in Fayettevill, Ark. In 2012. The band released a five-song EP, "Torn," earlier this year.
