Thank you @CrossChurch and @shilohsaints For holding a prayer session for Craig for the past two nights. I couldn't make it through life without all of you. Thank you to all the people who have come up, called, and messaged me to shower me with love. Thank you to @backroadanthem for loving me as a sister and being there for our family every step of the way.

The band shared a tribute on Twitter to Morland, whose body was discovered Monday.

The Oklahoma State Patrol says the search for Strickland will continue Thursday morning with a helicopter, search dogs and a scanning sonar.
