Friends and family of country singer Craig Strickland are holding on to hope for a miracle after he went missing on a hunting expedition on Monday that left his bandmate dead.

Strickland, 29, and Chase Morland, 22, members of the country band Backroad Anthem, had braved the winter storms that have been battering the U.S. Midwest to hunt ducks in Oklahoma on Sunday.

Morland's body was found along with their capsized boat in Oklahoma's Kaw Lake on Monday. County police have not found any trace of Strickland, reported US Weekly.

Morland had posted a tweet early Sunday morning, writing: "In case we don't come back @BackroadCRAIG and I are going right through Winter Storm Goliath to kill ducks in Oklahoma. #IntoTheStorm"

Strickland's wife, Helen, has been posting periodic updates about the search. She posted a photo of Strickland's dog Sam, who was found near Morland's body.

While the search continues, the band's Facebook account notified fans about a prayer vigil for Strickland at a local church.
