The 27-year-old Native American actor Cole Brings Plenty, who played the character Pete Plenty Clouds in the prequel to Yellowstone, 1923, with Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford, was found dead in Johnson County, Kansas. The sheriff's office said in a press release – People writes – that officers were called at 11.45am on Friday to the area where they found the deceased actor in a wooded area.

The young member of the Lakota tribe disappeared a few days ago, after being indicated by the authorities as a suspect in a case involving crimes such as residential burglary and aggravated domestic violence. The police “had submitted an affidavit in support of an arrest warrant, but the proceedings were to be kept confidential – writes NBC News – until formal charges were filed, the area district attorney's office said.”

Cole Brings Plenty was the grandson of Mo Brings Plenty, a film, television and theater performer as well as a musician, at the forefront for a correct and fair representation of American Indians in cinema and on TV: the public got to know him better thanks to Yellowstone, where he plays the character of Mo. On his social profiles, Mo Brings Plenty, after the disappearance of his nephew, had distributed the flyer with which the family asked for help and information for the searches, explaining that Cole had last been seen on Sunday evening aboard a white Ford Explorer and underlining that he was convinced that his nephew «would not have run away in any situation. It's not in his character, despite what people think or say.”

In the posts, after the news of his nephew's death, Mo Brings Plenty thanked all those who had helped the family with the searches, also sharing the message of his brother Joe Brings Plenty: «I am deeply saddened to confirm that my son Cole has been found and he is no longer with us – he writes -. We want to express our sincere gratitude to everyone for the prayers and positive thoughts you have sent for Cole.” During “this incredibly difficult period – he adds – we ask for privacy to process our pain and understand how to move forward”.
