Earlier this week it was reported that former reality star Kristin Cavallari’s brother Michael had been reported as missing. His car was found abandoned on a major highway in Grand County, Utah on November 27.
Sadly, it has now become known that his body has been found.
Kristin released a statement to US Weekly, confirming the tragic news.
“We want to thank everyone for their love, support and prayers during this very difficult time,” the 28-year-old said in the statement.
“We have just been informed by the authorities my brother’s body has been found. This is a very painful time and we are still processing it all. We kindly ask everyone please respect our privacy during our time of grieving.”
When Michael’s car was discovered over Thanksgiving weekend, it was still running, with the airbag fully deployed and his mobile phone still inside the vehicle.
He was last seen on a petrol station surveillance video camera 120km away earlier that day.
He was 30 years old. RIP.
