Patrol asks volunteers to stay clear of lake search

Ponca City Now - January 1, 2016 11:40 am

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol Marine Enforcement Division is requesting that no other boats enter the search area on Kaw Lake.

"We understand people want to volunteer in the search. However, with the search canines and OHP equipment being used, any other boats in the area will hinder our search efforts," said Lieutenant Kera Philippi.

" Thank you for understanding that there is a method to how these searches are conducted. We are working diligently to locate Craig M. Strickland and appreciate the public taking this request seriously so we can remain effective in the search operation."
