“Yellowstone” spinoff actor Cole Brings Plenty sought by police after alleged domestic violence incident

His uncle and fellow actor, Moses Brings Plenty, shared a missing persons poster on social media and asked fans for assistance in locating Cole.

Kansas police are searching for Cole Brings Plenty, an actor who appeared on the Yellowstone prequel series 1923, in connection with an alleged domestic violence incident that took place over the weekend.

In a Facebook post Tuesday, the Lawrence Police Department said it "submitted an affidavit to the District Attorney for the arrest of Cole Brings Plenty after an incident Sunday morning at an apartment in Lawrence. We've identified him as the suspect, have probable cause for his arrest, and issued an alert to area agencies."

Authorities said that officers initially responded to reports of a woman screaming for help, but the suspect fled before they arrived at the scene. Further investigation and traffic cameras led them to Brings Plenty, who was last seen leaving the city in a 2005 White Ford Explorer, traveling southbound on 59 Highway, police said.

The department added, "This incident involves allegations of domestic violence, which limits the amount of information we can share to protect the victim. No further details will be provided." A spokesperson for the department confirmed to Entertainment Weekly on Tuesday that no additional information was available.

Michelle Shining Elk, a spokesperson for the Brings Plenty family, said Wednesday in a statement to EW, "Despite our persistent efforts, we have been unable to establish contact with Cole; his disappearance without informing anyone of his whereabouts is uncharacteristic of Cole and deeply concerning. Regardless of the speculations, concrete evidence that Cole is on the run does not exist, and we urge everyone to refrain from making unfounded claims. We must allow the legal system to determine truth and justice — assigning guilt because someone is missing is not helpful to either party or the due process to which each of us has a right."

The statement added, "As we intensify our search for Cole, we hope 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."

Brings Plenty, 27, has appeared as Pete Plenty Clouds in two episodes of 1923. (Reps for Paramount+, which streams 1923, didn't respond to request for comment.) The actor's other TV credits include The Tall Tales of Jim Bridger and Into the Wild Frontier.

On Tuesday, Cole Brings Plenty's uncle Moses Brings Plenty — a fellow actor who plays Mo on Yellowstone — shared a missing persons poster of his nephew on Instagram, letting followers know his last known location and vehicle. The poster notes that Cole missed an appointment with his agent, "which is uncharacteristic for him," and that his cellphone is off.

Cole's father, Joseph Brings Plenty Sr., also shared a Facebook post featuring several recent photos of his son as well as the missing persons poster.

"If anyone knows where my son Cole Brings Plenty is please tell him to call me," he wrote. "His family is very worried about him.. Last seen early morning hours on Easter morning.. He hasn't messaged me or called me back, I have some of our family and friends in the area looking for him."

Lawrence Police noted on Facebook that "Brings Plenty's family has contacted officers, expressed concern, and reported him as a missing person."

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