Helen has received an outpouring of support from family, friends, and the country music community during this difficult time. Band-mate Toby Freeman spoke with People about what discovering Sam means to them.
"Craig's dog being found alive is a very good sign. That's a piece of hope that we're actually clinging on to. Dog being man's best friend is a saying that's so common, but it's actually so true in this case," he says. "Sam's an older lab and for him to make it in such harsh conditions—it's just so amazing, and we're clinging on to that."
The search for Craig Strickland has been called off again for Tuesday night due to weather and visibility, but will continue in the morning.
We are sending our thoughts to Strickland's family and friends during this very trying time and praying for a safe recovery of the country star.
