Mo Brings Plenty Says There's 'No Evidence' Nephew Is on the Run After Alleged Domestic Violence Incident

The 'Yellowstone' actor first shared that his nephew, Cole Brings Plenty, was missing on April 2.

Yellowstone star Mo Brings Plenty says there's no evidence his 27-year-old nephew, Cole Brings Plenty, is "on the run" after being named a suspect in an alleged domestic violence incident. 

On Thursday, Mo updated his followers on his family's search for Cole after ET learned the Lawrence Kansas Police Department filed an affidavit with the Douglas County District Attorney seeking the arrest of Cole after an incident took place Sunday morning. 

Sharing two new missing person posters, Mo told his followers that Cole's family is still trying to contact the young actor amid allegations of his involvement in the aforementioned incident. 

"Despite our persistent efforts, we have been unable to establish contact with Cole, and our immediate concern is his safety and well-being. Cole's sudden disappearance without telling anyone his whereabouts is anomalous, causing a wave of concern spreading rapidly across the nation and parts of Canada," Mo captioned his Instagram post.

He added, "It has been suggested that Cole is on the run, but there is no evidence to support this claim, and we urge everyone to refrain from making unfounded speculations. It's important to let the legal system determine truth and justice. Assigning guilt because someone hasn't been found is not the due process to which each of us has a right."

When it comes to the police department's warrant for Cole, Mo wrote that the actor's family hopes "that law enforcement -- the Lawrence Police Department and surrounding agencies -- devotes the same effort and resources to locating a missing person as apprehending a suspect. Cole deserves no less."

He concluded the post with another plea for folks to share any information they have regarding Cole's disappearance, adding several sources for them to contact. "If you can lead us to him, please get in touch with the following. Your assistance is crucial in bringing him home safely," he finished.

On Tuesday, the police department told ET they received distress calls regarding a woman in need of help at an apartment in Lawrence. By the time authorities arrived at the scene, Cole had already departed and was believed to be traveling southbound on Highway 59.

He was last seen driving a 2005 Ford Explorer with a Kansas license plate bearing the number 368PXB.

Due to the nature of the incident involving allegations of domestic violence, law enforcement's ability to disclose information is constrained to safeguard the victim. Therefore, no additional details will be disclosed at this time.

Cole's family reached out to authorities, expressing concern and reported him as a missing person.

The news came after Mo, 54, shared a missing person poster for Cole on his Instagram page on Tuesday afternoon.

According to the poster, Cole went missing from Lawrence, Kansas, on March 31. Alarms were raised after Cole missed an appointment with his agent about a role on a TV show, which the bulletin notes is "uncharacteristic for him."

The poster asks that anyone with information contact the Lawrence Police Department at 785-832-7509 or the Kansas Bureau of Investigation at 785-296-4017.

On Monday, Cole's father, Joseph Brings Plenty Sr., shared similar information on Facebook and asked people to be vigilant.

"He hasn't messaged me or called me back, I have some of our family and friends in the area looking for him," Joseph wrote in part. "Love you son, just reach out to me, messaging you on your phone."

Mo's Yellowstone co-star, Cole Hauser, also shared a poster on his Instagram page as well, sharing the family's call for help. He captioned the post with a personal note, 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."

According to The Lawrence Times, the actor was a student at Haskell Indian Nations University. He's since starred on two episodes of the Yellowstone spinoff 1923 as Pete Plenty Clouds and has also worked as a model.

The Kansas City Indian Center is working with Haskell to blast information. Executive Director Gaylene Crouser told The Lawrence Times that she's been in communication with Joseph since Monday evening as the center reportedly has experience assisting with missing Indigenous persons cases and acting as liaisons for out-of-town families trying to locate their loved ones in Kansas City and surrounding areas. 

Noting their work for the Missing and Murdered Indigenous People (MMIP) movement, Crouser told The Lawrence Times that "the statistics [of missing Indigenous persons cases] are heartbreaking and unreal. And unfortunately, a lot of times our folks are just falling through the cracks, and they don't get the media attention, they don't get the same attention. And so that's one of the reasons why we want to make sure to amplify MMIP in general and any specific cases that we come across when we know about them."
