Evelyn Boswell (15-months-old) has been missing since December 2019, but she wasn’t reported missing until Tuesday (Feb. 2020). Her mother, Megan Boswell claims to know who has her, but she won’t name names.
Megan Boswell, walked out of a court in Bristol, Tennesee. When she walked outside, she initially wouldn’t speak with News 5, but she later decided to.
Boswell says she didn’t contact police because she thought the person who took her daughter would disappear.
“Well the reason I didn’t report it or anything was I knew the person who had her, and I didn’t want them to run away with her,” Boswell said. “And as soon as they thought anything was going on they just kinda vanished. So I’m just kinda worried, you know, about where they are at. What they’re doing with her at this point in time.”
During the 10-minute plus interview — Boswell refers to Evelyn in both present and past tense throughout.
She says that Evelyn was with a person she trusted to watch her daughter while she was at work.
But Boswell says she cannot name names.
“In a way I knew that as soon as anything went down this person was going to disappear and they have. And they have tried to find them… They won’t answer phone calls. They just kinda disappeared.”
Boswell tells News 5 she’d do things differently if she is given a second chance.
“Yeah I probably would have called the first day. I should have. But I just didn’t want them to run with her, like they have now.”
In an afternoon press conference, Sullivan County Sheriff Jeff Cassidy said Boswell is involved in the investigation, but he says the information she has given them isn’t accurate. Cassidy said some of the things she has told them does not lead up to the information authorities have checked on.
The vehicle description and plate number that was given to authorities was located and the occupants were that of Boswell’s grandmother and a man. No charges were filed in regards to the missing little girl.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has now joined in the search for Evelyn Boswell, the 15-month-old Tennessee toddler who went missing in December as authorities arrest her grandmother for stealing a car.
William McCloud, 33, and Angela Boswell, 42, were arrested in North Carolina and charged with possession of stolen property after they were seen in a vehicle involved in the Amber alert for the toddler who has been missing since December.
