MYSTERY surrounds what happened to little Everlyn Mae Boswell who has disappeared without trace. 

Here is a briefing on what we know so far on this tragic tale.

1) Who is Evelyn Mae Boswell and when did the baby go missing? 

The 15-month-old girl has not been seen since December, but was not reported missing until February 19 when police issued an amber alert. 

The Bristol Herald Courier reported the the Amber Alert was issued after the sheriff's office received information from the Tennessee Department of Children's Services, which told them family members hadn't seen the baby in about two months.

The baby's great-grandfather, David Jones, told the newspaper that he hadn't seen the baby since about a week before Thanksgiving.

2) Who are her parents? 

The child’s mother is 18-year-old Megan Boswell.

Megan who said her family identified as gypsies, revealed that she told investigators that her mother took Evelyn to a campground in Mendota, Virginia.

"My mom took her to a campground in a silver camper and if they don't go tonight, I'm going to go find her myself, because I've told them and they're not really like taking it seriously," she told WJHL.

But Officials in Tennessee's Sullivan County told the station they checked the campground in Mendota and "nothing" was found

Boswell, who is from Blountville, Tennessee, is now being held in the Sullivan County Jail on a $25,000 bond after being charged with providing false information to detectives.

The child’s grandmother, Angela Boswell, who had allegedly been caring for Evelyn in December,and her boyfriend William McCloud was also arrested in Wilkes County, North Carolina.

County Sheriff Jeff Cassidy said at a press conference:“Every time we talk to her, her story changes. I’m serious when I say that. Every single time.”
