Cohasset, Massachusetts, police returned to the home of missing mother-of-three Ana Walshe on Sunday.

Fox News Digital obtained exclusive images showing a man who appears to be Walshe’s husband, Brian Walshe, at the scene. He drives a red Volkswagen away from the home.

Three children were seen being transported in a separate vehicle, a gray Volvo, by who are believed to be friends or relatives, away from the home, Fox News Digital can report. Law enforcement appeared to have moved the family from the house to investigate its contents.

Ana Walshe, 39, was last seen on New Year’s Day when she was reportedly expected to use a ride-sharing service to Logan International Airport in Boston to get on a flight to Washington, D.C., where she works for an international real estate developer and property manager.
