    Craig Strickland and Chase Morland


    Ark. band 'Backroad Anthem' lead singer still missing after hunting trip

    "UNDATED (KTHV) A member of the Arkansas band Backroad Anthem, as well as another person, are said to be missing after going on a duck hunting trip.

    According to a Facebook post by the band, member Craig Strickland and his good friend, Chase Morland, headed out to go duck hunting around 2 a.m. Sunday. The post details that they haven't made any contact with family over the last 24 hours. The post reads, "We are asking all fans to please pray for Craig and Chase to be found safe and sound."

    Just after 2:30 p.m. Monday, the band tweeted, "Please say special prayers for Chase Morland. They were very close. Craig is still missing please pray 4 safe return."

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    According to the bands fb, Craig has not been found. RIP Chase and praying for Craig. This is the second tragedy for the music community recently. 😢

    Oh no. This can't be good. Is it cold/rainy in the area? We're they wearing life vests? I hope Craig is found safe.

    Yes it has been raining for 2 or 3 days now and cold temps have just come into the area. Snow on the ground in many places. Unfortunately a capsized boat for duck hunters usually doesn't end well.

    Ugh! I didn't want to hear that. I'm hoping he was able to get away somehow and is huddled under some branches keeping warm, somehow.

    He still could be but it is unlikely. Almost all the rivers, creeks, and ponds are out of their banks. It has rained a lot. More than likely they were traveling across the lake at a decent speed and boat hit a tree that was washed in. The cold weather and cold water are second thoughts in this situation. They have to shed their waders fast or they will fill up with water and take them down. If they weren't wearing waders, then they have a lot of weight in clothes to get off in a hurry as well.

    Kaw Lake - Google Maps.jpg


    That's a pretty good sized lake. I was curious if this was some little watering hole or a large body of water, so I looked it up on a map. Hypothermia would definitely play a role if one had to try and swim very far in freezing water.

    I scaled the map, and in most places it's between 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 miles across from shoreline to shoreline, give or take. The Dam shown towards the upper right hand corner is 9600' across, just shy of 2 miles.

    If their boat got flipped over out in the middle while they were crossing over from one shoreline to the other, you don't have to have much of an imagination to see what problems could arise. That would be a pretty challenging distance to swim even in warm water on a sunny day.

    Here's a link with a photo of his dog Sam, and an article:

    "Strickland's friend Chase Morland, 22, who joined him on the trip in Kay County Saturday, has been found dead after an posting an eerily prophetic tweet.

    'In case we don't come back, @BackroadCRAIG and I are going right through Winter Storm Goliath to kill ducks in Oklahoma,' Morland tweeted late Saturday.

    He ended it with a smiley emoticon and the hashtag IntoTheStorm."

    Yikes. That's creepy.
