Los Angeles, January 1 (CINEWS):Craig Strickland remains missing, days after his boat capsized in Oklahoma, while his wife Helen Strickland continues to pray for her husband’s return.
The 29-year-old frontman of the country group Backroad Anthem, and his friend, Chase Morland, 22, had gone duck hunting several days ago. Their boat capsized around the same time a massive storm hit the area. Officials recovered Morland’s body on Monday. His dog, Sam, was found alive.
“The search has wrapped up for the night,” Helen tweeted late on Wednesday. “No major updates, but we’re hopeful for tomorrow. Thanks for your continued prayers.”
She also posted on Instagram a photo of a Bible, opened to 1 Thessalonians 5:9.
“While we hurt and experience the worst pain of our lives, we sometimes believe that God might not be there with us listening when we cry out to Him,” Craig’s wife wrote. “But then, when we least expect it, He speaks and comforts us in such beautiful ways.”
“Today we received a message with one of those beautiful blessings…Due to Craig’s disappearance, a family friend found herself unable to sleep. She got up and started cleaning out a closet and found a Bible with Craig Strickland’s name inside,” she wrote. “She spent the next 45 minutes searching scripture that Craig has highlighted. She then shared with us a few of the versus that stood out to Craig. These bible verses, which spoke to Craig, reminds us of God’s intentions for our lives.”
Helen has been posting updates and prayers on social media since news broke of her husband disappearance. On Tuesday, she posted the Bible quote Psalm 56:8. She also thanked supporters for attending a prayer vigil for Craig.
“You have no idea what that means to me and does for my heart,” she wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of the two.

“For those of you who don’t know, Craig he is the most passionate person that we know!” the group said on Facebook. “He is on fire for God, his Wife, his family, his life, and this band.
