Craig Strickland, the 29 year old lead singer of a group called Backroad Anthem, is currently missing and feared to be dead. Strickland and his 22 year old friend Chase Morland went on a hunting trip on Sunday despite an impending winter storm in Arkansas. The storm, Goliath, knocked down trees and power lines leaving over 200,000 homes without power and closed interstates. It also took the life of Morland who was found by the police last night along with the remains of their capsized boat.
The search for Strickland has been called off until tomorrow due to weather but things are not looking good for the country singer.
Craig's dog Sam has been found. His boat has been confirmed as being capsized. They are still searching for Craig. Please keep praying.— Helen Strickland (@HelenWisner) December 28, 2015
I'm trying to wrap my mind around why anyone would think that was a good idea.
