BLOUNTVILLE — As of Wednesday afternoon, 15-month-old Evelyn Mae Boswell had not been found, and there was no new information to release from the investigation into her whereabouts, Sullivan County Sheriff Jeff Cassidy said during a press conference.

Cassidy said Evelyn’s mother, Megan Boswell, remained in jail on false reporting charges.

“At this point, most of you are aware we have received a number of conflicting, inaccurate statements from the mother, Megan Boswell,” Cassidy said. “Many of the statements Megan made delayed our investigation and also impeded our investigation on trying to find Evelyn.”

Asked how Megan’s statements had been inaccurate, Cassidy said, “Every time we talk to her, her story changes. Every single time.” Our partners at the Kingsport Times News have more.
