This is all so sad.
On Sunday, we learned Kristin Cavallari's brother, Michael, had been missing for about a week and a half. Authorities found his car abandoned off a Utah highway, and he was last seen on the security cameras at a Monticello convenience store.
Now, we're learning a little bit more about what happened in the days leading up to the disappearance of the Laguna Beach star's sibling.

Police are saying the MTV personality's bro was arrested on November 23 for making criminal threats. However, he was released on bail only two days later.
Unfortunately, The Hills alum's flesh and blood has had trouble with the law before. Last year, he pleaded guilty for a DUI and was sentenced to three years of probation.
An insider says Michael was the family bad boy, explaining:
"Michael has always been the troubled brother … known for causing drama in the family."
The source also reveals that his sister is struggling to cope with this scary situation, saying:
"Kristin is very distraught about her brother missing and is focused on working with authorities to find her brother."
We can't even imagine what the blonde beauty must be going through. Our hearts are with everyone affected during this trying time.
Anyone with information about Michael's whereabouts is encouraged to contact the Grand County Sheriff's Office at 435-259-8115.
