Extensive multi-city search underway for missing 31-year-old Stoughton woman

STOUGHTON, Mass. — The concern is growing for a missing woman in Stoughton.

31-year-old Emma Tetewsky, who has a history of mental health challenges, was last seen Monday night by Pinewood Pond off Lakewood Drive. Her family last saw her on Sunday, police said.

“We’re concerned for her health and wellbeing,” said Chief Donna McNamara with Stoughton Police. “She is known to go for walks frequently, she is without a cell phone, and she doesn’t have any money at this time. We are concerned that she may not have eaten or drank any water since the last confirmed time of Sunday evening.”

Chief McNamara says officers have intensified their search to extend multiple towns.

Tetewsky is known to frequent Pinewood Pond in Stoughton and Lake Massapoag in Sharon and on Wednesday, police received a tip that she may have been in that area.

Police have been searching by air, with helicopters and drones, as well as with K9s and with boats using sonar.

“Additionally, we have searched wooded areas with quads in this location adjacent to this waterway, we also went through the Massapoag trails in Sharon with K9s and foot patrols with officers as well as quads in that area,” said Chief McNamara, while standing by Pinewood Pond Thursday afternoon.

Police described Tetewsky as approximately 5 feet-3 inches tall and weighing approximately 120 pounds. She may be wearing a light-colored, possibly blue, long-sleeved shirt, cropped leggings, and Birkenstock-style sandals.

Police believe she’s still in the area since she doesn’t have money or a car, so they hope residents in Stoughton, Sharon, Easton, and Canton will be on the lookout for her, especially if they live near the lakes.

Residents and businesses in both areas are asked to check footage from any cameras they may have for any sightings of Tetewsky between Sunday and Wednesday.

Residents in the area are also asked to check their sheds or outbuildings.

“If you live near any waterways, check under any canoes or rafts you may have, if you have an outbuilding, shed, under the porch, anywhere she may seek shelter,” said Chief McNamara.

At this point, police do not believe Emma’s disappearance is suspicious, but she tends to wander, so if you see her, keep an eye on her and call 911 right away.
