BROOKFIELD, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — On Tuesday afternoon, Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early briefed the press with the latest on the police's search for a missing Brookfield woman, with details on a new tip line launched specifically for the investigation into her disappearance.
Officials urge anyone with related information on the whereabouts of 35-year-old Brittany Tee to call the tip line at 508-453-7589.
Early says tips can be left anonymously over the phone, and that it's imperative that any detail relevant to Tee's disappearance, no matter how small, be reported to police. The DA's office goes on to ask residents to check their surveillance cameras for possibly relevant video footage and camper, buildings, or other structures on their properties.
"This will help our investigators immensely. We don't want you to have any reservations or fears about calling. Anything that is a spot where a person may look to get out of the elements— just take a look," Early said.
According to officials the search radius for Tee expanded from two to three miles on Tuesday, with a Massachusetts State Police Airwing flyover. Tee was last seen wearing a black winter coat, hoodie, jeans, and work boots on Tuesday, January 10 leaving a residence on Main Street.
Early says there is no crime scene or suspects, and that everyone involved in the investigation has been cooperative, including Tee's boyfriend. Officials found Tee's vehicle and laptop and have been searching them for clues— they do not have her cell phone, which they believe is still on her person.
"I understand that the longer this goes on, the more frustration and anxiety builds amongst people, but I want to remind everyone to remain positive— keep Brittany and her family in your thoughts and prayers and continue to hope for Brittany's safe return," Brookfield Police Chief Michael Blanchard said.
