Oh man, this is sad to hear.
Utah police had been searching for Michael Cavallari since Nov. 27 after his 2014 Honda Civic was found abandoned five miles south of exit 175 on I-70, but unfortunately he was found dead nearly 2 weeks after he went missing.
On Monday, Kristin, 28, uploaded an Instagram photo of herself and her brother as kids (above) writing, “We remain hopeful … I have such gratitude for all those that have shared their support.”
Orange County Sheriff’s Department records indicate that Michael was arrested on Nov. 23, just days before his disappearance, and briefly held in an Orange County Jail. He had a patchy, unstable history but despite his troubled past, he and Kristin had always been close.
Kristin’s former The Hills costar and friend Audrina Patridge tells PEOPLE: “That is such terrible news. My prayers go out to Kristin and her family.”
Agreed. Very sad news.
