BROOKFIELD – Brookfield and state police assigned to the Worcester County District Attorney’s Office have broadened the radius of their search for a Brookfield woman who has been missing since last Tuesday.
During a press conference at 2:30 p.m., Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early, Jr., gave an update into the ongoing investigation into the disappearance of Brittany Tee.
Tee, a 35-year-old Brookfield woman, was last seen on Jan. 10 at around 8:30 p.m. leaving a residence on Main Street near the Lewis Field area.
“She’s 35 years old, 5’6”, 120 pounds,” Early said during the press conference, which was held across the street from the Brookfield Police Department. “She was seen wearing a black winter coat, a hoodie, jeans and work boots.”
Tee was first reported missing to local police on Jan. 12.
According to Early, shortly after she was reported missing, there were a series of “investigative leads” that were tracked down as police went door to door throughout the town and surrounding areas, questioning residents about Tee’s whereabouts.
Early asked residents with security cameras to come forward with any “video at all,” adding that a lot of people have already come forward.
“Even if it doesn’t lead us anywhere, it helps us to eliminate different things that can help us go into the right direction,” Early said of residents with any surveillance camera footage around the time of Tee’s disappearance.
Chief Michael Blanchard of the Brookfield Police Department asked residents in the Maple Street area to check their outhouses, sheds and hunting blinds for the missing woman.
Anyone with information about Tee’s whereabouts is asked to contact the State Police Troop C Headquarters at 508-829-8326 or the Brookfield Police at 508-867-5570.
