Authorities revealed that a Massachusetts woman who had been missing for a week was rescued on Monday after being discovered trapped in mud at a state park south of Boston. Emma Tetewsky, 31, was found around 6 p.m. on Monday when police officers were dispatched to Borderland State Park. Hikers had informed them about a woman screaming for help in a marshy region. The Easton and Stoughton police departments, along with the Easton Fire Department, issued a joint statement regarding the incident. The state park is situated approximately 30 miles south of Boston.
It is believed that she had been ensnared in the mud for three days.
“The community never lost hope in the safe discovery of Emma Tetewsky,” stated the Stoughton Police Department on their Facebook page on Monday.
Emma Tetewsky was reported missing on June 26, around noon, after she was last seen near her residence in Stoughton. Stoughton is a town with a population of 29,000, located about 20 miles south of Boston. Authorities mentioned that she was known to frequent Pinewood Pond in Stoughton and Lake Massapoag in the nearby town of Sharon, Massachusetts. By June 28, additional agencies, such as the Massachusetts State Police and the police departments in Easton, Westwood, and Quincy, Massachusetts, had joined the search efforts. Despite thorough ground searches, including the utilization of police dogs, and aerial searches conducted by helicopters, no trace of Ms. Tetewsky was found. Authorities appealed to the public for assistance through regular social media posts, mentioning that Ms. Tetewsky did not have her cellphone with her.
Chief Donna M. McNamara of the Stoughton police urged residents living near waterways to “check beneath canoes or rafts and search places like outbuildings, sheds, and even under porches, as she may have sought shelter there” during an interview with WFXT-TV on June 29.
A breakthrough occurred on Monday afternoon when hikers at Borderland State Park, renowned for its fishing ponds, hiking trails, and biking paths, heard Ms. Tetewsky’s cries for help. Due to the challenging terrain, the hikers were unable to reach her on foot unaided and promptly contacted the authorities, as informed by the Stoughton police.
“Upon arrival, Easton officers could hear Tetewsky’s voice but were unable to locate her visually,” stated the police.
Three officers ventured through dense underbrush and a swamp, wading 50 feet from the shore to reach Ms. Tetewsky. They carried her back to dry land, where she received medical evaluation from firefighters, as reported by the Stoughton police.
