Plenty’s family initially reported him as a missing person after he ‘missed an appointment with his agent for a TV show, which is uncharacteristic for him’, while his mobile phone was switched off, as per the BBC.

The TV star was reportedly last seen leaving Lawrence, Kansas, in the early hours of Sunday, May 31.

The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office disclosed that deputies discovered Plenty’s body on Friday in a wooded area – roughly 43 miles southwest of Kansas City, Kansas, as per Sky News.

They were reportedly dispatched to the area after receiving reports of an unoccupied vehicle.

Plenty’s body was discovered two days after he was charged with aggravated burglary, domestic battery and criminal restraint, as per Sky News.

An arrest warrant had been issued.

A statement said (via BBC): “Officers responded to reports of a female screaming for help, but the suspect fled before officers arrived.

“The investigation identified Brings Plenty and traffic cameras showed him leaving the city immediately after the incident, travelling southbound on 59 Highway.

“This incident involves allegations of domestic violence, which limits the amount of information we can share to protect the victim.”

Due to the sensitive nature of the allegations, authorities have refrained from revealing further information about the alleged incident.

At the time of writing, Plenty’s cause of death is yet to be confirmed.
