Brian Walshe, the husband of missing Massachusetts mother Ana Walshe, was arraigned at Quincy District Court on January 9, 2023.

He is charged, under M.G.L. c. 268, Section 13B, with misleading police officers.

His wife, Ana, has been missing since January 4.

According to the police report, Brian told investigators that he and his wife had dinner with a mutual friend on New Year’s Eve. The friend left between 1 and 1:30 in the morning. After the friend left and before going to bed, Ana told Brian that she had a work emergency and needed to fly to Washington, D.C. later that morning. She woke between 6 and 7am and kissed Brian goodbye before leaving. Brian stayed in bed after she left, according to the report.

Brian also allegedly told investigators that he ran errands in the north shore area later that day, going to both Whole Foods and CVS.

However, the police report states

[A]t least six investigators were tasked with driving to the north shore area of Massachusetts to verify WALSHE’S route of travel and verify his visits to establishments like Whole Foods and CVS. WALSHE was not observed on video from Whole Foods or CVS in the time frame he state that he was there.

Based on the allegedly inconsistent statements made to investigators, Brian has been charged with misleading police.

District Court Judge Mark S. Coven set Walsh’s bail amount at $5,000,000 bond or $500,000 cash. As part of the reason for setting the bail at such a high amount, the judge wrote

suspect[ed] in disappearance of his wife.
