An AMBER Alert was issued for Evelyn on Wednesday, Feb. 19. Since then, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said it has 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.
