Search resumes in Oklahoma for missing country singer
OKLAHOMA - The search for a missing country music singer from Arkansas has resumed at a north Oklahoma lake.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the search for 29-year-old Craig Strickland resumed early Saturday on the north end of Kaw Lake, south of the Oklahoma-Kansas state line.
The patrol has been using search dogs, boats with sonar and drag lines and a helicopter in the search. Patrol Lt. Kera Philippi says two dogs were added to the search Saturday.
Strickland is the lead singer of the Arkansas-based country-rock band Backroad Anthem. He disappeared during severe storms Sunday while on a duck hunting trip with friend Chase Morland.
The pair's capsized boat was found Sunday, along with Strickland's dog, which was alive. Morland's body was recovered from the lake Monday.
In Illinois, the discovery of the body of 18-year-old Devan R. Everett has raised the death toll from winter flooding in the state to nine. Illinois Emergency Management Agency spokeswoman Patti Thompson says a flood-related death in Livingston County earlier in the week and the discovery of the missing teen's body Friday morning raised the tally after an earlier report of seven Illinois deaths.
