A lady who had been missing for a week in Massachusetts was located stuck in mud in a state park south of Boston on Monday, according to the authorities.
A 31-year-old woman named Emma Tetewsky was discovered at 6 p.m. on Monday after police were called to Borderland State Park by hikers who reported hearing a woman’s screams for assistance from a “swamp-like area,” according to a joint statement from the Easton and Stoughton police departments and the Easton Fire Department.
Around 30 miles south of Boston is where you’ll find the state park. It’s possible she became stuck in the muck for three days, according to the officials. Stoughton, Massachusetts police posted on Facebook on Monday, “The public never gave up hope that she would be located safely.” Ms. Tetewsky was reported missing on December 19.

Last seen near her home in Stoughton, a town of 29,000 people about 20 miles south of Boston, Ms. Tetewsky was reported missing at midday on June 26. Pinewood Pond in Stoughton and Lake Massapoag in adjacent Sharon, Massachusetts were on her regular tourist route, according to the authorities.
The Easton, Westwood, and Quincy, Massachusetts police departments, as well as the Massachusetts State Police, were called in to aid in the search by June 28. The ground and air searches for Ms. Tetewsky, which included the use of police dogs, were unsuccessful.

As Ms. Tetewsky did not have her smartphone with her, the authorities made daily social media posts appealing for the public’s assistance.
Stoughton Police Chief Donna M. McNamara told WFXT-TV on June 29 that people who live near waterways should “check under any canoes or rafts you may have, if you have an outbuilding, shed, under the porch, anywhere she may seek shelter.”
Hikers in Borderland State Park, a popular destination in the afternoons for its fishing ponds and hiking and bike paths, finally located Ms. Tetewsky on Monday. They were unable to reach her on foot, so they called the police, the Stoughton authorities stated.
Officers from Easton reported hearing Tetewsky but not seeing her upon their arrival. The Stoughton police reported that three officers waded 50 feet from the coast through heavy bush and swamp to reach Ms. Tetewsky, and then brought her back to the shore where she could be examined by firefighters.
According to the police, Ms. Tetewsky was awake and attentive when she was located; she was then transferred to a hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.
