Ponca City Now - January 4, 2016 10:21 am

A weeklong investigation by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol continues at Kaw Lake for Arkansas hunter Craig Strickland.

Strickland also was the lead singer for a Northwest Arkansas band, Backroad Anthem.

The search for Strickland continues after a duck hunting trip with a friend, Chase Morlan. Morlan’s body was found last Monday after the hunters’ capsized boat was located.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported at 6:45 p.m. Sunday that search efforts have been suspended for the evening due to darkness.

Assisting Sunday were four side scan boats and five search and rescue dogs used on land and water.

An OHP Sesna also flew over land and water.

Monday there will be four side scan boats. No search and rescue dogs will be used Monday.
