BLOUNTVILLE, Tenn. – Remains found at a home last week have been confirmed to be 15-month-old Evelyn Boswell, authorities said Thursday.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation confirmed the remains were the missing toddler Thursday afternoon.
The remains were found March 6 at the home of a family member. The girl’s grandfather said in February he called the state Department of Children’s Services to report Evelyn missing.
Authorities said she hadn’t been seen since December at the time she was reported missing.
Megan Boswell, Evelyn’s mother, was charged with false reporting in connection with Evelyn’s disappearance. Authorities said she made several false statements to investigators that cost them resources and lost time while searching for Evelyn.
