December 10, 2015


 At approximately 10:30 a.m. search crews located remains believed to be that of Michael Cavallari.  At this time, the body is being transported to the Office of the Utah Medical Examiner for positive identification and to determine the cause of death.  The search crews were searching the Salt Wash area, near exit 175 on I-70 in Grand County.  The terrain where the body was located is a steep and very rocky area.   

On November 27, 2015, Grand County Dispatch was contacted regarding a vehicle that was approximately 100 feet off of the Floy Wash Road.  Law enforcement responded to the area approximately 5 miles south of exit 175 on I-70 in Grand County.  Upon their arrival, a 2014 Honda Civic was found abandoned.  A search of the immediate area did not produce the driver.  The vehicle came back registered to an individual in San Clemente, California.  Information received from San Clemente law enforcement led investigators to believe the vehicle was driven by Michael Cavallari.  Credit card transaction receipts also led investigators to a convenience store in Monticello, Utah.  Upon reviewing the security footage from the convenience store, the driver of the vehicle was positively identified as Michael Cavallari.  At this time, the Grand County Sheriff's Office is handling this matter as an active missing person investigation.  Anyone with information or knowledge of the whereabouts of Michael Cavallari is asked to contact
the Grand County Sheriff's Office at 435-259-8115 or www.grandcountysheriff.org
