NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has issued an AMBER Alert for 15-month-old Evelyn Mae Boswell from Sullivan County.

According to the TBI, Evelyn was reported as a missing child on Tuesday, but had last been seen on Dec. 26. At the time, she was wearing a pink tracksuit, pink shoes and a pink bow.

Authorities said there is an active investigation in this search and, “the child’s mother, Megan “Maggie” Boswell, has been involved in the investigation along with the father, Ethan Perry, who is active duty in the military, stationed in Louisiana.”

According to Captain Andy Seabolt of the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office, there have not been any major developments in the search for Evelyn Mae Boswell as of 7 a.m. Thursday.

Captain Seabolt said the sheriff’s office had begun investigating Evelyn’s case on Tuesday after the Department of Children’s Services alerted them to a missing child.

Originally, the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office was told Evelyn was last seen in late November to early December, but later interviews revealed she was actually last seen around December 26.

Captain Seabolt said that when the sheriff’s office first began investigating the case, the criteria was not met for an AMBER Alert. However, after conferring with the TBI, the criteria was met and an AMBER Alert was issued.

No additional information was immediately released about her disappearance.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts is urged to contact the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office at 423-279-7330 or the TBI at (800) TBI-FIND.
