Crews conclude search Tuesday in ponds, woods for missing Brookfield woman last seen 2 weeks ago

BROOKFIELD, Mass. — The search for a missing Brookfield woman who was last seen two weeks ago concluded on Tuesday with no developments after crews scoured ponds and woods for clues in connection with her disappearance.

Crews on Tuesday did not find Brittany Tee, 35, or evidence connected to her disappearance, state police said.

Tee was last seen leaving her boyfriend’s house on Main Street on Tuesday, Jan. 10, according to law enforcement officials. She was reported missing three days later.

Friends told Boston 25 News that a lack of communication caused the delay in notifying police.

Several members of the Massachusetts State Police Special Emergency Response Team, a trained search and rescue unit, and two State Police K9 Unit teams continued searching a vast wooded area near Tee’s home on Tuesday, after efforts were suspended Monday due to a strong winter storm that rolled across the state. Eight Massachusetts State Police divers, working with a State Police Marine Unit and Massachusetts Environmental Police assets searched the Quaboag River, Quaboag Pond, and Dunn Brook and surrounding marshland.

There was no plan to resume the water search on Wednesday, and investigators will assess the status of the search and determine next steps, state police said.

Over the weekend, crews searched more than 250 acres in Brookfield using ATVs, K9s, and a helicopter.

Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early and detectives assigned to his office continue to investigate the circumstances of Tee’s disappearance.

Early previously urged people to check their home surveillance cameras to see if they spot Tee. Early also encouraged people to search their sheds, garages, and other places where a person could be to keep out of the elements.

Anyone who may have seen Tee or has information about her is urged the call the investigation’s tip line at 508-453-7589.
