His uncle, Mo, posted a missing person poster on Instagram, stating Cole was last seen leaving Lawrence in his 2005 white Ford Explorer.

On Friday, the Kansas Sheriff’s Department reported finding Cole Brings Plenty’s body in Johnson County. At about 11:45 a.m., police responded to a call about an empty car on Homestead Lane near Edgerton. They found Cole’s body in the woods nearby. The Lawrence Police Department had been searching for him due to reports of child abuse.

Despite his rising career, Cole Brings Plenty’s life was tragically cut short, leaving fans and family in shock.
