On April 5, 2024, Cole’s father, Joe Brings Plenty, shared a tragic and heartfelt message.

I am deeply saddened to confirm that my son, Cole, has been found and is no longer with us.

We want to express our heartfelt gratitude to everyone for the prayers and positive thoughts you sent for Cole. We would also like to thank everyone who came to walk beside us as we searched for my son and provided the resources we needed to expand our search areas. I learned this week how many people knew the goodness in Cole’s heart and loved him.

During this incredibly difficult time, we ask for privacy as we process our grief and figure out how we move forward.

Please know we appreciate you and appreciate your understanding,

Joe Brings Plenty, Sr. & Family
