Shain Gandee of the MTV reality show "Buckwild" was found dead Monday along with two others in a vehicle today.

Kanawha County Sheriff's Department Cpl. B.D. Humphreys says the 21-year-old, along with his uncle David Gandee, 48, and the third man were found Monday near Sissonville.

Kanawha County Sheriff's Department Cpl. B.D. Humphreys says the vehicle was found wrecked in a muddy area a few miles from Gandee's home in Sissonville, about 15 miles outside of Charleston.

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.

Humphreys did not provide details on the condition of the vehicle or the bodies. He said no foul play was suspected.

Kanawha County Commission President Kent Carper said the news was devastating for the small community near Charleston.

"It's a very sad day for the Sissonville area and for these families," he said. "This is a small community, and most of us know directly members of these families. We're keeping them in our hearts and prayers."
