SISSONVILLE, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia authorities say a cast member of the MTV reality show "BUCKWILD" has been found dead, along with his uncle and a third, unidentified person.

Kanawha County Sheriff's Department Cpl. B.D. Humphreys says 21-year-old Shain Gandee and 48-year-old David Gandee were found Monday in a vehicle near Sissonville.

Humphreys says relatives had been searching since early Sunday morning for both men. They were last seen around 3 a.m. Sunday at a bar in Sissonville.

Humphreys says no foul play is expected.

MTV said in a statement that Shain had a magnetic personality, with a passion for life that touched everyone he met.

Shain Gandee is now the third BUCKWILD cast member to make headlines.

Last week, 24-year-old Salwa Amin was sent back to Central Regional Jail for violating the terms of her previous release.

She was charged in February with two counts of drug possession with intent to deliver and initially jailed on $200,000 bond. That was later reduced to $100,000, but Amin remained behind bars without bond on Monday.

State Police say a multi-agency task force arrested Amin and two other people at a Summersville residence after receiving a tip from an informant. A search found oxycodone pills, heroin and $3,000 in cash.

Another cast mate, Michael Douglas Burford, was charged in February with driving under the influence.

The MTV reality show was filmed largely around Sissonville and Charleston last summer.
