The remains believed to be missing 15-month-old Evelyn Boswell have been recovered by investigators when they searched the property belonging to a family member of Evelyn’s mother in the 500 block of Muddy Creek Road in Blountville, Tennessee, on Friday evening, March 6, according to News Channel 11.

Evelyn Mae Boswell has been missing since early December 2019 but her family didn’t report her missing until Feb. 18 when her grandfather, Tommy Boswell Sr., told the Department of Children’s Services that Evelyn hadn’t been seen in two months by certain family members, authorities said.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) and detectives with the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office searched the property after receiving new information in the case.

“We have a heartbreaking update in the search for #EvelynBoswell. This evening, authorities found remains believed to be those of the missing 15-month-old. An autopsy is pending and the investigation remains ongoing. Thank you for your support during this difficult process,” the TBI tweeted.

Authorities said the investigation into the death is in its early stages and there is much work to be done.
