CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Paula Broadwell, General Petraeus’ biographer and mistress, was spotted at her brother's home in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday night.
Broadwell was spotted through a window of a home in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood by media in D.C.
Broadwell, who lives in Charlotte, has been out of sight since the General Petraeus sex scandal broke late last week.
Broadwell's sighting comes just 24 hours after the FBI searched her Dilworth home. Several agents brought out two computers and bags of evidence from inside her home.
Early Monday NBC Charlotte also learned the scandal has grown to include General John Allen who is in charge of U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
He is being investigated for so-called inappropriate emails -- potentially 20,000 of them, sent to the Petraeus family friend who claims Broadwell sent her harassing emails.
“It never would have been found out if the mistress would have just stayed in her place... assume someone else is the other mistress and start threatening the other woman he’s married, he’s not yours…” Charlotte resident Jai Galloway told NBC Charlotte.
White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters on Tuesday that the president was surprised when he heard about the affair.
“He greatly appreciates, General Petraeus' remarkable service to his country both in uniform and at the CIA, and as he said in his statement, 'his thoughts and prayers go out to both General Petraeus and Holly Petraeus at this time.'”
The FBI says they don’t expect to release any public documents associated with the search Monday night.
