Woman Missing One Week Was Stuck In State Park

Stoughton police said Monday that a woman reported missing for a week was found safe in a Massachusetts State Park.

Park Goer Goes Missing For A Week

Emma Tetewsky, 31, of Stoughton, was last seen by her family on Sunday before traveling to Borderland State Park.

Tetewsky was reported missing by her family last Monday, June 26.

She was believed to still be in the area because she did not have access to a car and her cellphone was not with her.

Hikers in the park heard Tetewsky screaming for help in a swamp-like area. Unfortunately, they were unable to reach her by foot and reached out to the police for help.

Police Launch Search After Reports Of Screaming In Park

31-year-old Emma Tetewski was found alive in Borderland State Park in Easton by police, who believe she was trapped for upward of three days in the swamp.

“Utilizing ATVs, Easton PD undertook rescue efforts to reach Emma and free her as she was stuck in the mud for several days,” Stoughton Police wrote.

“Three police officers entered the water and waded through thick brush and swamp until they located a woman approximately 50 feet out from land,” Easton police wrote in a news release. “They were able to reach her and carry her back to land where Easton Firefighters were able to render aid.”

“Emma was conscious and alert, and she was taken by ambulance to a local hospital for observation,” Stoughton police wrote.

Multiple Agencies Looked For Emma Tetewsky

The Stoughton Police Department was assisted in the search by several public safety assets.

Drones and boats were used from the State Police Air Wing, Metropolitan Law Enforcement Council, the Norfolk County Sheriff’s Department, the Stoughton Fire Department and the Quincy Police Department.

“There were so many agencies involved in the search for Emma over the last week,” Stoughton Police wrote. “We thank everyone involved. The public never gave up hope that she would be located safely. She could not have been located without the public’s help.”

Police previously said Tetewsky has a history of mental health challenges and did not have her cell phone with her.
