Evelyn Mae Boswell Wiki – Biography
Evelyn Mae Boswell Tennessee authorities believe they’ve found the remains of 15-month-old Evelyn Boswell, who was reported missing a little more than two weeks ago. Evelyn was last seen in December and police initially said last month they were investigating why it took so long to report the toddler missing.
On Friday, Sullivan County Sheriff Jeff Cassidy said detectives received a tip that led to a property belonging to a “family member of Evelyn’s mother.”
Evelyn Mae Boswell Age
Evelyn Mae Boswell is 15 Month age.
Evelyn Boswell was declared missing on February 18, 2020. In the Tennessee database of missing children, Evelyn’s name appears with the note: “Evelyn was entered as a missing child on Tuesday February 18, 2020 but was reportedly last seen on December 26, 2019.” It also describes her as “a 15-month old, white female, 2 ft tall, 28 lbs., with blonde hair and blue eyes. Evelyn was last seen wearing a pink tracksuit, pink shoes, and a pink bow.”
It’s unclear why the girl wasn’t reported missing earlier. Evelyn’s grandfather is the one who finally reported her missing. Leslie Earhart, TBI spokesperson, told NBC News that “Investigators are trying to determine why she wasn’t reported missing until this week.”
The Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office had a press conference on Friday and discussed the difficulties with this case. Sheriff Jeff Cassidy said that the FBI, the TBI, and the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office have been working very hard the last three days on this case.
He said that they believe Evelyn is still alive and also that a babysitter was the last non-family member to see her, on December 10 or 11. During the press conference, a reporter asked when the mother or father saw Evelyn last, and Cassidy answered: “I’m not gonna go with what the mother stated because, like I said, some of the conflicting stories are inaccurate.” Instead, he said he’s “going on” the date the babysitter gave.
They said their main concern is finding Evelyn, and that “we are not disregarding anybody as a suspect at this time.” Cassidy added that Megan Boswell and the father, Ethan Perry, are both involved in the investigation.
Cassidy said that he would personally contribute $1,000 in the search for Evelyn.
Megan Boswell Appeared in Juvenile Court
Megan Boswell was spotted leaving the courthouse in Bristol on Friday morning but stayed silent in the face of questions by reporters about her missing daughter. News station WJHL was on site and confirmed that Boswell was at the courthouse for a juvenile court hearing. They were unable to get further information from court clerks about the hearing details and subject matter.
Heavy reached out to the Bristol Courthouse for more information but has not yet received a reply.
Evelyn’s Father Is Ethan Perry
Evelyn’s biological father is Ethan Perry, an active-duty soldier with the U.S. Army born in 1999. According to Facebook, he joined the U.S. Army in November 2017, the same year he graduated high school. He is stationed in Louisiana, but it’s unclear if he is in Tennessee right now or in Louisiana.
He posted on Facebook on February 19: “I’m currently working with authorities trying to find Evelyn. I can’t say much more than that at the moment. If anybody knows anything please message me.” He has also reposted the TBI’s AMBER alert post on February 21.
According to Sheriff Cassidy’s press conference, Megan Boswell had full custody of Evelyn.
Megan Boswell has a few different profiles on Facebook, though it’s not clear why. She has one profile under the name Maggie Boswell, which includes a lot of photos of her child. The profile says she is studying at Northeast State Community College, but it’s unclear if she is still attending school.
She has another profile under the name Maggie Wood, and this one has the same cover photo of Evelyn that TBI is using for the AMBER alert. That picture was uploaded on November 3, 2019. According to WJHL, Hunter Wood has come forward saying he is Megan’s ex-boyfriend, which may be why this profile has this last name.
A third Facebook profile for Megan is under the name Megan Nicole Kys. This profile appears to be more dated, without anything posted since 2017. She posted a picture in 2017 kissing Ethan Perry, and recently tagged him in the comments using her Maggie Wood profile.
She posted about her daughter in September 2019, a post that has since been deleted from Facebook. In it, she said “I’m not the best mom in the world, but I try so hard for this little beauty. I can’t even explain the love I feel for her, and i know she loves me too. Lately my lifes been really sucky but she’ll come reach for me and say ‘mom mom’ and my heart melts and I’m reminded of her unconditional love.”
She continued, “You can say whatever you want about me being a young mom, but I promise you my life is so much better with this angel. My life wasnt ruined when I had her, she gave me a purpose and a reason to wake up everyday and to better myself. Theres no love like the love from your child!”
Evelyn was born on November 21, 2018.
Hunter Wood spoke to WJHL and said that he used to date Megan Boswell but never once saw her daughter. He said they dated in December for a few weeks but “All I’ve seen is pictures of her, I’ve never even seen the baby,” he said to WJHL. “I have no relationship with that child whatsoever.”
He said his relationship with Megan never got serious. He told WJHL that Megan told him Evelyn was staying with her father Ethan Perry while he was home for the holidays on military leave.
Body found in Tennessee identified as missing toddler Evelyn Boswell
A body found in Tennessee has been positively identified as missing toddler Evelyn Mae Boswell, authorities said.
The 15-month-old girl’s remains were found Friday on property belonging to a relative in Sullivan County, where an investigation into circumstances surrounding her death is ongoing, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation officials announced Wednesday.
As we feared, the remains have now been positively identified and are, in fact, those of the 15-month-old girl,” spokeswoman Leslie Earhart said in a video posted on Twitter. “We understand that Evelyn captured your hearts — she captured ours as well — but due to the fact that this is an ongoing investigation, we’re limited as to what details can be released.”
The statewide law enforcement agency is now assisting deputies in Sullivan County, where no one has been charged in the girl’s death as of early Thursday, Earhart said.
“As previously mentioned, we are not releasing additional details at this time,” Earhart wrote in an email to The Post. “No charges have been placed, and the investigation remains active and ongoing.”

Evelyn’s mother, Megan Boswell, was charged late last month with lying to investigators about her daughter’s disappearance. Sullivan County Sheriff Jeff Cassidy said Boswell’s “conflicting, inaccurate” statements to police had hampered efforts to locate the girl, whose body was eventually found after a 17-day search.
Megan Boswell remained jailed on $150,000 bond Wednesday after prosecutors argued for an increase from $25,000 after the discovery of her daughter’s body, which was clad in the “exact clothing” she was described as wearing when she was reported missing, the Knoxville News Sentinel reports.
Meanwhile, the girl’s grandmother, Angela Boswell, and Angela’s boyfriend, William McCloud, have been released from jail after allegedly driving a stolen 2007 BMW to North Carolina days after the Amber Alert was issued, the newspaper reports.
The car was set to be sold to the Boswell family, but no final agreement was reached, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by the newspaper. Neither has been charged in connection with Evelyn’s case.
