Efforts have been increased in the search for a 39-year-old woman from Cohasset, Massachusetts, who has not been seen since New Year’s Day.
Cohasset Police have asked for the public’s help in finding Ana Walshe, who was last seen at her home shortly after midnight on New Year’s Day.
Cohasset police held a news conference Friday to provide an update on the case. Cohasset Police Chief William Quigley said detectives from his agency and several others, including the Massachusetts State Police, were working “round the clock” on the case.
“Right now it’s a missing person investigation,” Quigley said. “We’re just trying to locate Ana and get her home safely. We don’t have anything to support anything suspicious or criminal.”
Also on Friday, a fire broke out at the Walshe family’s former home on Jerusalem Road in Cohasset. They moved in months ago, police said, and it was too soon to say Friday if it was related to her disappearance.
The female was described as being 5’2” tall and weighing about 115 pounds.
Walshe has brown hair, brown eyes, an olive complexion, and speaks with an Eastern European accent.
Her friends say that she is a wife and mother of three small children.
Friends have been posting her photo on social media asking for help finding her. They say she was supposed to catch a flight from Logan early Sunday morning to Washington, DC, where she works.
It is not clear if he ever made that flight.
