Country singer Craig Strickland was still missing earlier today, and his wife Helen thanked everyone who was still looking for him. Us Magazine shared that Helen Strickland had hope that Craig could still be alive after a test that was done to prove if he could have floated after their boat overturned. Sadly, that was not the case. It has been over a week since Craig Strickland went missing in Oklahoma while on a hunting trip. The friend who was with him, Chase Morland, was found dead after posting a very cryptic tweet before they left on the trip.

People recently shared that they recently did a test to find out if Craig Strickland could have survived when the boat flipped over. Helen shared a video showing that he could have possibly floated instead of sinking immediately. It turns out that is not the case at all. Along with it, Craig Strickland’s wife explained what they did.
“We were unable to locate Craig Strickland today. However, we are able to stay positive after conducting an interesting experiment to see if waders actually cause a person to sink. From this experiment we can conclude that Craig may have actually floated after the boat was capsized.”
