• Country singer missing, friend found dead in Oklahoma


    The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the body of a 22-year-old man has been recovered and a second man is missing after the two went duck hunting and their boat capsized.

    Patrol Capt. Paul Timmons confirmed Monday that rescuers discovered the body of Chase Morland from Kaw Lake in northern Oklahoma. A second man, 29-year-old Craig Strickland of Springdale, Arkansas, was still missing.

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


    Rescue workers found the boat shortly after midnight Monday, after the two were reported missing.

    Just after midnight Saturday, Morland tweeted that he and Strickland were heading into the storm to go duck hunting.


    The band has posted several updates on their Facebook page.
