Search to continue for missing Brookfield woman, water search planned next week

BROOKFIELD, Mass. — A water search is planned next week for 35-year-old Brittany Tee as crews concluded an expansive ground search on Saturday, state police said.

“Search for Brittany Tee has concluded for the day; more than 250 acres covered today. Neither Ms. Tee nor evidence of her whereabouts were found,” state police said in a tweet late Saturday afternoon. “Detectives continue to investigate direction of travel/possible locations.”

Tee was last seen leaving her boyfriend’s house on Main Street on Tuesday, January 10. She was reported missing three days later.

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

Search crews have been using police dogs and the Massachusetts State Police helicopter while combing the woods around Lewis Field.

The Worcester County District Attorney’s Office said dive and marine units are scheduled to assist with the search on Monday.

The DA’s Office is urging people to check their home surveillance cameras to see if they spot Tee.

“We’ve got some great stuff coming in, and again, if it doesn’t show us exactly where she might be, it does help us eliminate some areas so we can focus on other areas,” said Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early. “We’re hoping to find Brittany, we’re hoping to find her alive.”

Early also encouraged people to search their sheds, garages, and other places where a person could be to keep out of the elements.

Investigators have opened an anonymous tip line. Anyone with information is asked to call 508-453-7589.
