We miss her a lot and we're just praying for her to be safe. Everyone that knows and loves Ana, we just want her home safely. Her husband and her boys were someone she talked to every single day and the fact that she hasn't been in touch with them is concerning and it's not like her to not be in touch with anyone. It's just really scary." However, on Sunday, January 8, Brian was seen driving to Boston in a red Volkswagen away from home in Cohasset.
