Jay Cutler didn't have the best of games yesterday as the Bears lost to the 49ers. But perhaps he has a pretty good excuse.

According to the Chicago Tribune, authorities in Utah are looking for Cutler's brother-in-law, Michael Cavallari, who went missing more than a week ago:

On Nov. 27, police received a report of a car off the road about 5 miles south of Interstate 70 and exit 175. Responding officers found a 2014 Honda Civic abandoned. Authorities searched the area but could not find the driver, the sheriff's office said.

The registration of the car traced back to San Clemente, Calif., and led police to believe Cavallari was the one driving. Authorities then traced credit card receipts to a convenience store in Monticello, east of where the car was found abandoned. Surveillance video at the store showed Cavallari driving the Civic.

Michael Cavallari lives in San Clemente, California.

The Grand County sheriff is investigating it as an active missing person case, and is asking anyone with information on Cavallari's whereabouts to contact the office at (435) 259-8115.
