Megan Boswell, the mother of 15-month-old Evelyn Boswell, was arraigned in Sullivan County Court this morning. She was arrested last night for reportedly not being honest with investigators about the disappearance of Evelyn.
Now we know the circumstances of the giving a false report to authorities charge on Megan Boswell.
Court documents in court this morning indicate she initially told the Department of Children Services Evelyn Boswell was with her father when the investigation into her disappearance began.
Court documents state when investigators spoke with Megan February 18, she told them that Evelyn was with her father, Ethan Perry.
Megan told investigators she was supposed to meet Ethan February 19 at 4 p.m. in the parking lot of the Ingles in Colonial Heights in Sullivan County, Tennessee to exchange custody.
The problem with that story is Ethan, who is actively enlisted in the United States Army, was at Fort Polk, Louisiana and did not have Evelyn.
After her court appearance this morning, Megan is now scheduled to be back in court March 2.
A babysitter reported last seeing Evelyn December 11, 2019 but she was not reported as missing until last week, when the girl’s grandfather contacted the Department of Children’s Services.
An AMBER Alert was issued for Evelyn February 19, 2020. Since then, the TBI received more than 500 tips in the case, but so far, there have been no credible sightings of Evelyn.
Anyone with information on Evelyn’s whereabouts is urged to contact the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office at (423) 279-7330 or the TBI at (800) TBI-FIND.
