BROOKFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The search continues for the missing 35-year-old woman from Brookfield who has been missing for over a week.
The Massachusetts State Police, along with the Special Emergency Response Team, multiple K-9 Units, Drone Units, MSP Troop C patrols, Brookfield and Worcester Police Officers, and Worcester Police Cadets resumed their search for Brittany Tee on Saturday in a large wooded area near her home in Brookfield. The team was also assisted by two trained civilian teams, Berkshire Mountain Search and Rescue and Central Mass Search and Rescue. The team also searched along Route 9 and Route 148.
The teams did not locate Brittany on Saturday after searching over 250 acres of land by ground and by air. The State Police Dive Team and Marine Unite are planning to search bodies of water next week if Brittany is not found before then.
Brittany was last seen on January 10th at about 8:30 p.m., walking away from the home where she was staying on Main Street toward Lewis Field.

Brittany was reported missing three days later by her family, according to Worcester District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr. The DA is asking town residents to search their sheds and garages for any sign of the young woman and even urging residents with security cameras to check to see if they saw her.
22News spoke with Don Haberlin, a lifelong resident of Brookfield, who says this isn’t the first time a tragedy like this takes place in their small town. “It is small and it’s pretty tight-knit you didn’t have to worry about it. Now it’s a different story obviously because they had somebody killed over in West Brookfield a couple or three years ago and then now this has happened here.”
