But the missing woman never boarded her plane, officials said. “Every hour, we’re getting more concerned for her well-being,” Cohasset Police Chief William Quigley said on Saturday. “We have more questions than answers.” Walshe was headed to Washington D.C. for her job with the D.C.-based real estate company Tishman Speyer. The company told the media that it is fully cooperating with officials “in their ongoing search for our beloved colleague, Ana, and are praying for her safe return.” Chief Quigley added that his office is working with both the Massachusetts State Police and the D.C. Metropolitan Police to investigate the woman’s disappearance. Quigley added that there is no evidence of murder or abduction, and he hopes Walshe will be found and that nothing criminal is discovered about her disappearance. “Life is challenging sometimes. She has small kids — the oldest being 6 and the youngest being 2 — the holidays, working out of state — sometimes life gets chaotic, and it may be a case where she needed a break, and if that’s the case, we need a call from her or someone who has talked to her,” Quigley said in a statement, according to WCVB-TV. Still, friends seem to feel the chief’s hopeful characterization of the disappearance is out of step with the woman they know. “She’s a loving and loyal wife and mother of three beautiful boys,” said Alissa Kirby, a friend, WCVB reported. “She loves her family, and I know in my heart that of her choice, she would not go a day without speaking to her husband and her kids.” “Honestly, I’m scared. Really, really scared,” Kirby added. Then, to make the whole case even stranger, on Friday, a fire broke out at a home in which Walshe used to live. The home in Cohasset broke out in flames, causing its inhabitants — a couple, their toddler and nanny — to flee the premises as the fire department worked to douse the blaze. All inhabitants made it out safely and are in no danger, CBS Boston reported. missing, the more unlikely her safe return seems. Everyone is praying for her well-being.
