Shain Gandee Dead

“Buckwild” cast member Shain Gandee was found dead, TMZ reports.

In a statement released Monday morning, the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department reported the MTV reality star as missing. However, authorities later confirmed that the 21-year-old was found dead in a truck in Sissonville, W. Va., along with two other bodies, the Charleston Gazette reports.

ABC affiliate WCHS-TV reports that a man on a four-wheeler spotted the three unresponsive people in a vehicle on Wolf Pen Road Monday morning. After emergency services responded, the three were confirmed dead.

According to Kanawha County Commissioner Kent Carper, the body of Gandee’s 48-year-old uncle, David Gandee, was also recovered, local CBS affiliate WOWK-TV reports. The identity of the third body has not been released.

In the missing persons advisory, police said Gandee was last seen with his uncle at Larry’s Bar in Sissonville at about 3 a.m. on March 31. Both men were reported missing overnight after family and friends could not locate them throughout the day.

The two men told others that they planned on going “four-wheeling” in the younger Gandee’s Ford Bronco, police said. However, the men did not specify exactly where they planned to drive off-road. The red-and-white vehicle was last seen leaving the parking lot of Larry’s Bar early Sunday morning.

MTV recently renewed “Buckwild” for a second season. The reality show, which is filmed around Sissonville, has received heavy criticism from West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin who called for its cancelation. In a letter to MTV, Manchin slammed the “Jersey Shore” replacement for its “ugly, inaccurate stereotypes about the people of West Virginia.”
