Former CIA Director David Petraeus’ ex-mistress is reportedly staying with her brother in Washington, D.C.

Paula Broadwell, whose affair with the retired four-star general led to his resignation from the CIA, has been photographed in the District by the Associated Press. The pictures, taken Tuesday night, are the first published photos of Broadwell since the affair was revealed on Friday.

Washington City Paper identified her brother as Stephen Kranz. On Monday, the New York Daily News revealed that Broadwell and her husband were on a romantic getaway when news of her affair with Petraeus broke.

The pair checked out of their bed and breakfast early Saturday, but did not return to their Charlotte, NC home. Since then the family have been in an “undisclosed location.”

FBI agents searched the Broadwell home in Charlotte Monday evening for four hours, leaving with boxes and two computers, according to a report from the Charlotte Observer.

Broadwell’s driver’s license was recently discovered by a jogger in Rock Creek Park — a public park bordering Washington, D.C. and Maryland — U.S. News and World Report reported on Tuesday.
