SISSONVILLE, W.Va. (AP) — A "BUCKWILD" cast member and his uncle are missing, and authorities on Monday asked the public to help locate them.

The Kanawha County Sheriff's Department said 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.

Family members reported them missing after searching on their own and trying to contact the men Sunday, Cpl. B.D. Humphreys said. The men had planned to go four-wheeling but didn't say where.

Humphreys said foul play isn't suspected, but anyone with information about the men's whereabouts is asked to contact the sheriff's department at 304-357-0169.

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.
