The Grand County Sheriff’s office said that crews discovered the remains believed to be that of Michael Cavallari Thursday morning in the same general area where his car was found abandoned on Nov. 27.

According to a press release from Grand County Sheriff’s Office posted Thursday, search crews located the body of Michael Cavallari around 10:30 a.m. while searching the Salt Wash area near exit 175 on I-70 in Grand County. Police note the terrain where the body was found is a “steep and very rocky area.”

The press release does not offer any indication regarding the cause of death but states the man’s body is being transported to the Utah Medical Examiner to determine the cause of death.

He is the brother-in-law of NFL quarterback Jay Cutler, who is married to Kristin Cavallari.
