Human remains found Friday in Sullivan County have been positively identified as those of 15-month-old Evelyn Mae Boswell, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Wednesday.

Evelyn was first reported missing on Feb. 18. The toddler had not been seen in two months or more.

“As we feared, the remains have now been positively identified, and are, in fact, those of the 15-month-old girl,” said TBI Public Information Officer Leslie Earhart. “We understand that Evelyn captured your hearts. She captured our’s as well. But due to the fact that this is an ongoing investigation, we’re limited to what details can be released.”
