Shain Gandee, the star of MTV's Buckwild, was found dead this morning in West Virginia.

He was reported missing after telling folks around 3 a.m. Sunday that he was going four-wheeling with his uncle, David, with authorities confirming this morning that Shain and two others were discovered in the vehicle in Sissonville, W.V.

Shain was 21 years old. The whereabouts of David Gandee are unknown at this time.

We'll update this story as more news breaks and our thoughts go out to Gandee's family.

Shain is the third member of the Buckwild cast to make headlines for the wrong reasons.

Salwa Amin was in custody Monday after violating terms of her release on pending drug charges, while Michael Douglas Burford was charged in February with DUI.

Time to pull the plug, MTV?

UPDATE: It sounds as if David also died in the accident and that the cause of deaths is believed to be carbon monoxide poisoning.
