‘So out of the norm’: Sister of missing Brookfield woman speaks out as search efforts continue

BROOKFIELD, Mass. — Concern for the wellbeing of a missing Brookfield woman is growing as investigators ramp up their investigation into her disappearance.

Brittany Tee, 35, hasn‘t been seen since Tuesday, Jan. 10, according to Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early Jr.

Brittany was last seen leaving her home on Tuesday but her sister, Bethany Tee, says it’s unclear if she left in a car or headed somewhere on foot.

Bethany said her sister always stayed in touch with family and that her sudden lack of communication is highly unusual.

“She’s loving, hardworking. She loves her niece and nephew very much. She would not leave on purpose,” Bethany said as she fought back tears. “We always talked to her almost daily. This is so out of the norm for her and that’s what scares us. I just don’t know.”

Bethany said she last talked to Brittany on the morning of her disappearance and “everything seemed fine.” Bethany also noted that she believes her sister left home with her phone, iPad, and wallet.

“There’s a lot of people that are really concerned about her and we just want her to know that we all love her so much and that we want her home safe,” said Brittany’s friend, Mattie Sjoblom.

Troopers used a drone, cadaver dogs, and ground teams on Sunday as they worked to track Brittany down. They also searched her home for clues.

Investigators returned to Brookfield on Tuesday to continue the search. They are expected to provide an update during a 2:30 p.m. news conference.

In a tweet, state police said, We continue to investigate the disappearance of Brittany Tee...Search teams worked areas near her home extensively yesterday. Investigation continuing today seeking info to guide future search operations.”

Brittany is described as 5 feet, 6 inches tall, about 120 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes. She was last known to be wearing a black winter coat, a hoodie, jeans, and work boots.

Anyone with information on Brittany’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Brookfield Police Department at 508-867-5570.
