Shain Gandee Buckwild

After being reported missing by family members yesterday, Buckwild cast member Shain Gandee has reportedly been found dead along with two others in a vehicle near the Wolf Pen Road area in Sissonville, West Virginia.

“Three people were found dead Monday in the Sissonville area in a vehicle, including Buckwild cast member Shain Gandee, Kanawha County Commissioner Kent Carper said.” The site adds, “The names of the other people found in the vehicle were not available. Authorities had been searching for Gandee, who had been missing along with his uncle, David, for about 31 hours. It had not been confirmed yet whether David Gandee was in the vehicle.”

Our thoughts are with the Gandee family during this difficult time.

Here is the original post made after Shain and his uncle were reported missing:

Shain Gandee and his 48-year-old uncle David Gandee have gone missing, according to a new report. The Buckwild star and his uncle reportedly visited a bar in Sissonville, West Virginia early Sunday morning, but haven’t been seen since. The family contacted police yesterday and a missing persons report was issued for both parties.

The Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department claims that the family searched for them most of the day Sunday, but to no avail. The two were at Larry’s Bar in Sissonville around 3 a.m. on Sunday, and had said they were planning to go four-wheeling in Shain’s Ford Bronco but didn’t reveal where.

No foul play is suspected at this time.

TMZ is speculating that they could have died from carbon monoxide poisoning because the tailpipe was submerged in mud, but nothing official has been revealed at this time.

According to the missing persons report, “Both are white men, about 6 feet all. David Gandee weight about 225 pounds, with brown hair and green eyes. Shain Gandee weighs about 180 pounds, with brown hair and green eyes. They were last known to be driving Shain Gandee’s vehicles, a 1984 red and white Ford Bronco with oversized tires. The West Virginia license plate number is 3UD308.”

A couple members of the cast of Buckwild have tweeted about the missing Shain:

Cara Parrish: “It sure is hard to find someone when they take off if they don’t believe in cell phones. #ImGoingToPlantAGPSInShain”

Shae Bradley: “Can’t sleep.”

      This is absolutely not an April Fools joke. Our hearts go out to his family and friends.

    sooo sad he was my fav on buck wild… 🙁

  • Charla

    I’ve never watched the show but this is very sad. Did the people at the bar try to convince them that maybe it wasn’t smart to go four wheeling at 3am after having drinks? So sad.

  • tab

    I don’t watch the show, but my heart goes out to those who loves him. so sad.

  • Jamie

    Never watched the show because of how outrageous it seemed. However, this is a very sad situation and my thoughts and prayers are with his cast mates, friends, and family.

  • Ally

    Honestly I don’t see how “No foul play is suspected at this time.” I have a very bad feeling about this though. RIP Shain

    • AK

      If they were in a car accident then foul play wouldn’t be suspected. I have heard stories in the past when cars weren’t visible by passerbys so the accident went unnoticed. If they were at a bar until very late there’s a chance if it was a car accident there weren’t many people on the roads to witness it. Very sad no matter what the circumstances, prayers to his family and friends

      • So then why not just say they were involved in a motor vehicle accident, why the big secret that will only cause people to speculate about rather nefarious causes?

        • AK

          Because they can’t release information until a full investigation is done.. Whether there was drinking involved in the accident, whether they were killed on impact, whether there was carbon monoxide poisoning involved (which is what I’ve read). Not all deaths are black and white. This is how all untimely deaths are handled. I think it’s also respectful to the families involved to know all details before anyone else

  • Geniya

    i wonder the cause of death

  • Allison

    Rest in peace, Shain. I can’t believe this. He was my favorite on Buckwild.

  • Lashay

    I wonder what happened to him??? He was my favorite person on “BUCKWILD”.. (R.I.P. Shain Gandee♥♡

  • joe davis

    carbon monoxide is hard to notice until it is to late.

  • ashley

    I wish this was a bad April fool’s joke. I’m so sad :'(

  • R.I.P. Shain

    It may have been carbon monoxide poisoning. Look on TMZ, they have pictures of the vehicle they were in.

  • Sharonda
