Missing Toddler Evelyn Boswell Reward At $70,000 Says Sheriff
This is one of those stories that keep you up at night. Fifteen-month-old Evelyn Boswell was reported missing last month; however, family members say they have not seen her since mid-December.
The Sullivan County Sheriff's Office says the reward for information leading to Evelyn has now reached more than $70,000. If you have any information on where Evelyn may be, contact the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation at 1-800-TBI-FIND. (800-824-3463)
The grandmother of a missing Sullivan County child told a judge on Wednesday that prosecutors are trying to make a criminal case out of a "civil matter."
Authorities investigating the disappearance of Evelyn Mae Boswell filed a car theft charge against the girl's grandmother, Angela Boswell, 42, and the grandmother's boyfriend, William McCloud, as a means to get both behind bars for questioning.
At the time, Evelyn's 18-year-old mother, Megan Boswell, claimed her mother, Angela Boswell had a role in the toddler's disappearance, but Megan Boswell has since been charged with lying to authorities.
Angela Boswell and McCloud were arrested Feb. 21 in Wilkes County, North Carolina, on the car theft charge, a few days after Angela Boswell's estranged husband reported Evelyn missing and told authorities the child had not been seen since mid-December.
McCloud has been jailed ever since. Angela Boswell posted bond. Authorities are no closer to solving the mystery of Evelyn's disappearance, and both McCloud and Angela Boswell were set to appear Wednesday in Sullivan County General Sessions Court for a preliminary hearing on the theft charge.
