"Ana has been missing for 11 days. The chances of finding her are grim, but we have to care for her children. That should be our priority," Natasha told the station. "We're sure social services is just as concerned about Ana's boys as we are, but we need to make sure they're in a private house and they're interacting with their friends," Sky said. "We're begging social services to let us care for them and don't put them in foster care. That's the only way we can help Ana's kids."

Ana's mother, Milanka Ljubicic, is being helped by Natasha's nonprofit Sky International Center in Newton Centre by raising funds for her to fly to Massachusetts from Serbia. Ljubicic told the station that her daughter had asked her to come to visit just a week before she disappeared. Ana's other sister Aleksandra Dimitrijevic is living in Toronto.

The search led law enforcement to a Swampscott waste facility about an hour away from their home, where investigators reportedly found trash bags with blood, a hatchet, a rug, used cleaning supplies, and a hacksaw, as per CBC Boston.

The Norfolk District Attorney's Office issued a statement Tuesday about evidence that had been collected. "Search activity conducted north of Boston yesterday resulted in a number of items being collected, which will now be subject to processing and testing to determine if they are of evidentiary value to this investigation," the Norfolk DA's Office said.
