SULLIVAN COUNTY, TN (WSMV) - The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has issued an Amber Alert for a missing 15-month-old girl out of Sullivan County. 
 
The TBI says Evelyn Mae Boswell was reportedly last seen on Dec. 26, 2019. She was not reported as a missing child until Tuesday, Feb. 18. 

“We’ve had a child who has not been seen by the parents and certain family members in almost 2 months. This is unlike anything I’ve ever seen," said Sheriff Jeff Cassidy.

Officials released an update Friday morning stating that there's believed to be new information on Evelyn's whereabouts.

The BMW has since been found in Wilkes County, NC, along with the people authorities were looking to speak with. Boswell, however, is still missing.

WCYB reports the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office has announced Ballad Health and CEO Alan Levine, Fuller Paving Group and Sheriff Jeff Cassidy have contributed to a reward to help find Evelyn Boswell. The reward for information on Boswell's whereabouts is now $36,000. The following people and companies have contributed to Evelyn's reward fund:

  • Sullivan County Sheriff Jeff Cassidy - $1,000
  • Alan Levine - $5,000
  • Ballad Health - $25,000
  • Fuller Paving Group - $2,000
  • Indian Springs Armory - $500
  • Storage Source One Self-Storage-$2,500

“I am personally donating $1000 in a reward to any information that results in the safe return of Evelyn and would like solicit other community members or anybody from the nation to attach themselves with me to aid in bringing sweet Evelyn home," Sheriff Cassidy said. 

Authorities said her mother is working with them, but some of the things she told them during interview are not adding up.

"She is cooperating. Some of the information she has given us hasn’t been accurate. Her stories aren’t leading up to stuff when went out and checked on video surveillance, eyewitness testimony," Sheriff Cassidy said. 

Boswell's mother, Megan, told authorities she did not report Evelyn missing because she knew who she was with. 

"I was afraid they would take her but as soon as they saw everything going on, I'm just worried where they are at," Megan said. "I love [Evelyn] and I miss her and I'm going to get back to her as soon as I can." 

Anyone with information on her whereabouts should call the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office at 423-279-7330 or the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
