Strickland was declared missing Monday afternoon after his friend, Chase Morland, was found dead in Kaw Lake, OK. The two pals embarked on a duck hunting trip over the weekend and Morland even foreshadowed the tragedy on Twitter by writing, “In case we don’t come back, @BackroadCRAIG and I are going right through Winter Storm Goliath to kill ducks in Oklahoma. #IntoTheStorm.” h/t  e!
