gray-bar-update
"Buckwild" star Shain Gandee has been reported missing after going on an off-roading trip with his uncle ... and never coming home.

The Kanawha County Sheriff's Office in West Virginia just issued a press release, claiming the MTV reality star and his uncle David Gandee were reported missing last night, roughly 24 hours after they were last seen at a Sissonville bar.

According to cops, 21-year-old Shain and 48-year-old David had told people at the bar they were planning to go four-wheeling ... but didn't tell anyone where they planned to ride. They haven't been seen or heard from since.

At the time of the police press release, Shain and his uncle had been missing 31 hours. They were last known to be in Shain’s car, a red and white 1984 Ford Bronco with oversized tires.

He has been found dead along with 2 others according to wsaz.com out of Charleston, WV. As a fellow West Virginian, this makes me sad. I never knew the guy but he seemed like a good ole boy as they like to say around here. Don't drink and drive. Go tell that person how you feel, take that trip that you desire, help your fellow neighbor because there is no telling when your time is up

Damn, he was one of the if not the coolest person on that show. SHAME on you folks poking fun and cracking jokes about this. I bet if it was your son or friend you would conduct yourself with more respect.

Get drunk and go off road 4-wheeling. This is why these stereotypes of stupid rednecks exist. What kind of MORONS go from a bar to a 4 wheeler in the woods in the dark? Darwinism at work here folks.
