The body of country singer Craig Strickland was found on Monday, authorities confirmed to FOX411.
Strickland was the lead singer of the Arkansas-based country-rock band Backroad Anthem. He disappeared during severe storms on Dec. 27 while on a duck hunting trip with friend Chase Morland.
The pair’s capsized boat was found that day. Morland’s body was recovered from the lake on Dec. 28.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol Marine Enforcement Division found Strickland’s body Monday morning, authorities said.
“Strickland’s body was located within the original search area known as Bear Creek Cove,” authorities stated.
The singer’s wife shared the news on Twitter.
The country singer was 29.
His wife, Helen, also described her husband’s final moments in an Instagram post.
“The night of the accident he had fought his way out of the water and up a hill before the stages of hypothermia set in. He experienced no pain in his final moments and simply felt like he was falling asleep,” she said.
She thanked fans for their prayers and support.
“There was not a more peaceful way for him to go into the arms of our Lord,” she wrote, “and I know your prayers had a role in making that happen.”
