SISSONVILLE, W.Va. (KDKA) - The star of MTV's reality show "Buckwild," has reportedly been found dead, along with two others in Sissonville.

Kanawha County Commissioner Kent Carper says police told him that one of the bodies is that of Shain Gandee, a member of the Buckwild TV show cast.

Another body is reportedly his uncle, David Gandee. The third identity has not been released.

Police say that family members have been notified.

The Kanawha County Sheriff's Department said Monday in a news release that 21-year-old Shain Gandee and his uncle, 48-year-old David Gandee, were last seen around 3 a.m. Sunday at a bar in Sissonville.

Sheriff's deputies issued a missing persons advisory for Gandee, 21, and his uncle, David Gandee, 48, earlier this morning.

Family members spent most of Easter Sunday searching for the men before calling 911 to report them missing. They were last known to be driving Shain Gandee's vehicles, a 1984 red and white Ford Bronco with oversized tires.

Foul play isn't suspected.

The MTV show was filmed largely around Sissonville and Charleston.

With his death, Shain Gandee is the third cast member to make headlines in recent weeks. Salwa Amin was in custody Monday after violating terms of her release on pending drug charges. Michael Douglas Burford was charged in February with driving under the influence.
