An eerie note written in bright red letters by Ana Walshe looking forward to the year ahead from a New Year’s Eve party just hours before she disappeared can exclusively be revealed by The Post.
“Wow! 2022…What a year! And yet, we are still here and together! Let’s make 2023 the best one yet! We are the authors of our lives…courage, love, perseverance, compassion, and joy. Love, Ana,” reads the ominous message, written on the side of a Lanson Noble Cuvee champagne box.
The champagne sits in the kitchen of Ana and husband Brian Walshe’s family home, which appears to be largely untouched since the party, also attended by family friend Gem Mutlu.
Another side of the box reads: “Gem Ana Brian 2023!”
Mutlu previously claimed nothing was amiss at the party, saying: “We hugged and celebrated and we toasted, just what you do over New Year’s.
“There was a lot of looking forward to the New Year. There was no indication of anything other than celebrating the New Year, problems on hold,” he told WBZ-TV.
Mutlu said he left the party around 1:30 a.m., then Brian claims his wife then awoke him a little after 6 a.m. saying she had a “work emergency” to attend to in Washington DC and left for the airport — the last time he saw her.
However, the Post’s exclusive pictures also show two passports lying on the countertop of the couple’s home.
Police have said they have no record of Ana getting a ride share or leaving on a plane that morning, and claim her phone still pinged from cell towers near her home on Jan 1. and Jan 2.
Brian has since been arrested and held in jail for misleading investigators about his whereabouts on those same two days, causing a delay in searching for Ana, who he reported missing on Jan. 4.
A police search of the property also found blood in the home’s basement and a broken knife, according to an affidavit for Brian’s arrest. Ana has yet to be located, although the search continues.
The couple’s three children, aged between two and six, are in the custody of Department of Children and Families..
