About the only silver lining to the news that “boat marks, foot prints and dog prints were found today” is that the search area was reduced by 50 percent, according to the wife of missing country singer Craig Strickland.

Craig Strickland, 29, of Springdale, Arkansas, disappeared - along with a friend who was found dead - while duck hunting in a boat in a 38-mile long lake in northern Oklahoma.

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

The expansive terrain, coupled with the severe storms that pounded the area over the weekend, hampered rescue efforts.

Earlier Thursday, Helen Strickland posted an Instagram photo of a bible she said her husband had highlighted.

While we hurt and experience the worst pain of our lives, we sometimes believe that God might not be there with us listening when we cry out to Him. But then, when we least expect it, He speaks and comforts us in such beautiful ways. Today we received a message with one of those beautiful blessings...Due to Craig's disappearance, a family friend found herself unable to sleep. She got up and started cleaning out a closet and found a Bible with Craig Strickland's name inside. She spent the next 45 minutes searching scripture that Craig has highlighted. She then shared with us a few of the versus that stood out to Craig. These bible verses, which spoke to Craig, reminds us of God's intentions for our lives. No matter the outcome of this circumstance, the truth of God's word can comfort and give strength to each of us. He loves you and I, and desires good for our lives. Therefore, every difficult situation CAN be used for good. I am so thankful God allowed the holy spirit to lead our friend to Craig's Bible. I pray that the truth of His words would wash over each of you as it did for Craig and his family. Thank you Craig Michael for sharing with us the wisdom that the Lord shared with you. And thank you Lord for giving us the opportunity to share Your truth through Craig's legacy.
