Kristin Cavallari's brother Michael Cavallari has been found dead, she confirmed Thursday, nearly two weeks after his car was found deserted in Utah.
"We have just been informed by the authorities my brother's body has been found," the reality TV veteran and fashion designer said in a statement obtained by a number of outlets, including the Los Angeles Times. "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."
Later, on Instagram, she posted an early childhood shot of herself and her brother, ending her touching caption with a broken-heart emoji.
