We present a search for decay of the Y(1S) meson into undetectable final states, using a sample of Y(3S) mesons collected at the PEP-II/BaBar B-factory. We tag the decay of the Y(3S) into the Y(1S) through a pair of charged pions, and measure the rate at which the Y(1S) decays into particles which do not interact with the BaBar detector. Furthermore, we present a search for charged lepton-flavor violating decays Upsilon --> e+ tau- and Upsilon --> mu+ tau- which probes BSM contributions at the TeV mass scales.
