Missing ‘1923’ Actor Cole Brings Plenty Named Suspect in Domestic Violence Case

Authorities in Kansas are searching for Cole Brings Plenty, the nephew of Yellowstone star Mo Brings Plenty and recurring actor on the show’s spinoff series, 1923

On Tuesday, Mo, 54, shared a missing persons poster of his nephew on Instagram, announcing that Cole, 27, had been last seen on Sunday evening in a white Ford Explorer. According to the poster, he missed an appointment with his agent for a TV show, which is “uncharacteristic” for him, and raised alarm. The poster noted his cell phone is “currently off.”

Cole, who played sheepherder Pete Plenty Clouds in 1923, was last seen leaving Lawrence, Kansas, in his car in the “early morning hours” on Sunday, per the poster.

Mo’s Yellowstone costar, Cole Hauser, who plays Rip Wheeler on the series, shared the poster on his Instagram as well, writing, “My good friend @mobringsplenty nephew is missing. He was last seen on Easter evening in Kansas City. If you have any information on his whereabouts please contact the below or your local police.”

Hours after the Yellowstone stars shared the missing person poster, the Lawrence Police Department released a statement on Facebook naming Cole as a suspect in an incident that “involves allegations of domestic violence.”

According to the release, authorities “responded to reports of a woman screaming for help” in an apartment on Sunday morning. After an investigation identified Plenty as a suspect, “traffic cameras showed him leaving the city immediately after the incident.”

In addition to being named a suspect, the police said they “have probable cause for his arrest, and issued an alert to area agencies.” However, the authorities kept details of the incident to a minimum due to the sensitive nature of the allegations. Per the release, no further details will be shared.

The police also noted that Cole’s family has been in touch with authorities, “expressed concern and reported him as a missing person.”
