SPRINGDALE, Ark. - A search has resumed in northern Oklahoma for a country singer from Arkansas who went missing along with a friend while duck hunting in severe weather.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol Capt. Paul Timmons said Tuesday that authorities had returned to Kay County in northern Oklahoma where 29-year-old Craig Strickland of Springdale, Arkansas, went missing on Sunday.

On Monday, troopers recovered the body of Strickland's hunting companion, Chase Morland, from a Kaw Lake.

Timmons says the remote location coupled with recent heavy rains have complicated the search effort.

Strickland is the lead singer of the Arkansas-based country-rock band Backroad Anthem.

The weekend storms are blamed for at least three deaths in Oklahoma and more than 100 injuries, according to the Oklahoma State Department of Health.
