This is heartbreaking.
The search for Craig Strickland has come to a heartbreaking end as officials found the country singer’s body in Oklahoma’s Kaw Lake on Sunday.

A search was underway for the singer, who was declared missing last Monday, Dec. 28, after he and his friend Chase Morland failed to return from a duck hunting trip. Chase was found dead shortly after the men went missing, while the search continued for Craig.
Earlier today, Craig’s wife, Helen, addressed his passing on Twitter.
#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.
