Police say the Marine Enforcement Division located the 29-year-old’s body in Kaw Lake, located 8 miles east of Ponca City, just south of the Oklahoma-Kansas state line. 

Strickland and his friend, Chase Morland, were reported missing on December 27 during a duck hunting trip.

Authorities recovered Morland’s body from the lake a day later. 

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