Breaking: Missing Men From Pine Ridge Found Dead

A two-week long search for three Lakota men has ended Monday evening after the men were found dead in the vehicle they were last reportedly seen in.

The three Lakota men who went missing more than two weeks ago were found dead late Monday, the Oglala Sioux Tribe confirmed.

Tevin Tyon, 21, Tyrell Wilson, 23, and Juan Lamont, 24, were found just before 9 p.m. inside the Buick Lacrosse they were last seen in, local NBC News affiliate KNBN reported.

The vehicle was found in the White River on the Pine Ridge reservation from what appears to be a single car rollover accident. 

State and local authorities, family and volunteers had combed the area for weeks hoping to locate the men.

“Our prayers and condolences go out to their families,” the Oglala Sioux Tribe Department of Public Safety posted on its official Facebook page.

The three men were last seen on Pine Ridge on May 7. They reportedly said they were going to take a ride in the country.

Sources say the vehicle likely careened off of a dirt road near Prairie Wind Casino, landing upside down in the White River.

Police will release additional information after family members have been notified. 

ICTMN will continue to follow this story as it unfolds.
