“There’s an awful lot of people involved and doing as much as they can to help us find some answers,” Early said.

Early said police have received some very helpful tips, and asked the public to keep them coming.

“These things…they never have a timeline. They work themselves out slowly. But it does allow us to move more quickly when we can eliminate different things. And that’s what the tips have been doing for us,” he said.

Anyone who is nervous about giving a tip with their name attached can send a tip anonymously by calling 508-453-7589 and leaving a message.

Early also called for people who have home security footage and live in the area to provide it to police to help them eliminate possible scenarios of what may have happened to Tee.

People living in the Brookfield area should also keep checking structures on their property for Tee, he said.

Brookfield Police Chief Michael Blanchard urged the public to come forward with any and all tips about Tee’s disappearance, no matter how big or small they may seem.

“I also understand that the longer this goes on, the more frustration and anxiety builds amongst people,” he said. “But I want to remind everyone to remain positive, keep Brittany in her family and your thoughts and prayers, and continue to hope for the safe return of Brittany.”
