Helen Strickland, the wife of the late country singer Craig Strickland, announced on Twitter today that her husband’s dead body had been found. The discovery, which happened in the Kaw Lake area around Tulsa, OK, ended a search that had been going on for a week.
#CraigStrickland was found today. He is safe with his Father in Heaven. Thank you Lord for leading us to him today. I will praise you, Amen.

Craig disappeared after going duck hunting with his friend Chase Morland. The last thing Chase tweeted was pretty ominous:
“In case we don’t come back, @BackroadCRAIG and I are going right through Winter Storm Goliath to kill ducks in Oklahoma. #IntoTheStorm.”
Chase’s body was found last week.
Craig leaves behind his wife Helen, a former Miss Alabama 2014 who currently works as a speech teacher at Shiloh Christian School. The two were married for around a year before Craig’s disappearance.
