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."
