Kristin Cavallari’s brother’s body found

Michael Cavallari’s body was discovered by searchers three miles north west of his vehicle, towards the bottom of a rocky slope.

The 30-year-old brother of The Hills star, appears to have been walking back towards the I-70, the highway he inexplicably left with such disastrous consequences.

But his wandering took him further into the desert, away from the dirt track he had taken – either in error or in an inexplicable moment of misjudgement – when leaving the I–70 at exit 175.

Cavallari drove more than five miles down a dirt track but had turned back to head towards the highway once again when he careened off the rubble strewn path, coming to a halt in rocky, heavily rutted ground some 100 feet from the road. 

His airbags had deployed and the engine of his car was still running when it was discovered on the morning of November 27.

Kristin Cavallari who best known for her role on reality show The HIlls, is also married to Chicago Bears quarterback, Jay Cutler.

Referring to the distressing discovery which comes 14 days after Cavallari vanished into the Utah desert Sheriff White said: ‘We had a large group of thirty plus people searching out there. We found him at approximately 10.30 this morning. It was a tough day.’

Cavallari’s body has been sent to the Medical Examiner to determine time and cause of death. Toxicology results may take up to 8 weeks to come back.

Sheriff White added: ‘I’d like to send my condolences to the family. This is a tough situation. But there were multiple agencies that assisted this and a lot of people who put in dedicated time and I’d like to thank them for bringing closure to this.’
