So sad. Kristin Cavallari’s brother Michael is reportedly missing after his car was found abandoned on a Utah highway, and police are currently searching for him. Get more details here.
Utah police are currently searching for Michael Cavallari, the brother of Laguna Beach alum Kristin Cavallari, 28, as his car was found abandoned on Nov. 27. The state’s Grand County Sheriff Department issued a press release on Dec. 5 that declared the case as an active missing person investigation, as Michael has apparently not been seen or heard from since his vehicle was found. We can only imagine how scary this must be for Kristin and her family.
According to the press release, Michael’s 2014 Honda Civic was found on Nov. 27 — the day after Thanksgiving — approximately 100 feet off the road about 5 miles south of exit 175 on I-70. When law enforcement wasn’t able to locate the driver in their initial search of the area, they found that the car was registered to a San Clemente, Calif., resident believed to be Michael. They also found credit card receipts that showed transactions from a convenient store in Monticello, Utah, which is in the county just below Grand County. Security footage from the convenience store allowed authorities to positively identify Michael, suggesting that this is the last place he visited prior to going missing.
To make things more heartbreaking for Kristin, she and her husband, NFL quarterback Jay Cutler, just welcomed a little girl, Saylor James, on Nov. 23, just four days before Michael was reported missing. We hope police can find Michael soon, and that he is alive and well.
Update: Kristin posted a heartfelt post to her Instagram on Dec. 7 to thank fans for their support, along with a picture of her and Michael as kids. She wrote, “I appreciate all the concern, thoughts, and prayers that have been extended to me and my family. We remain hopeful and I will share any news that we receive. I have such gratitude for all those that have shared their support.”
HollywoodLifers, send love to Kristin and her family as police search for Michael.
