COHASSET, MASSACHUSETTS: Ana Walshe, the 39-year-old real estate investment manager and mother of three young boys, has been missing since New Year’s Day. However, her disappearance wasn't reported to the police until January 4. While the search continues, her husband Brian Walshe, 47, has been arrested for misleading the investigators. Brian had claimed that his wife took a ride to Boston's Logan International Airport and has disappeared since. He was arrested on January 8 and is being held on $500,000 bail bond. Shortly after, he pleaded "not guilty." In a recent interview Ana's friend Natasha Sky opened up about how Ana "never spoke about Brian" and didn't bring her husband to events she attended.

Ana met her husband Brian in 2008, and the couple later tied the knot in Serbia in 2015 and began living together in a wealthy seaside suburb, south of Boston. Brian is the son of a renowned Boston neurosurgeon. Cohasset Police were recently spotted searching behind an apartment in Swampscott. Authorities were reportedly searching for items Brian may have disposed of during his trip. Meanwhile, police have revealed that they found blood on a damaged knife in the basement of the house and that Brian had purchased $450 worth of cleaning supplies. He also allegedly searched online for “how to dispose of a 115-pound woman’s body".

Sky further elaborated that Ana avoided questions about not bringing her husband to the events and never gave a direct answer, "It was unusual, typically when such a big event like the event of the opening of the Sky International Centre," said Sky, adding,  "You would think that Ana professionally would be with her husband and perhaps nanny would take care of the kids."

Sky told that whenever she asked Ana about his husband not attending, Ana would say let's talk about the kids. She further added reiterating that Ana avoided talking about her husband, "I knew there were some challenges with Brian's past but it was a no-no subject"

According to a public incident report filed in Washington, DC, on August 2, 2014, Ana Knipp (now Walshe) had told DC Metro police that Brian, who is not named in the report but sources indicate that the suspect here is him. She allegedly made a statement over the telephone that he was going to "kill her and her friends.” The police report lists the potential offense as felony threats. However, Ana "refused to cooperate in the prosecution." Hence, the case was dropped, reports Boston 25 News. Brian was also involved in art fraud, in 2021 he pleaded guilty to wire fraud and selling two fake Andy Warhol paintings in 2016, as reported by Newsweek.
