WILKES COUNTY, N.C. — The search for 15-month old Evelyn Boswell has expanded from Tennessee to North Carolina, the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office confirmed in a news conference Wednesday.
Boswell, who has not been seen since December, was reported missing on February 18. She has been the subject of a Tennessee statewide Amber Alert ever since.
Earlier this month, authorities in Wilkes County, North Carolina arrested two people in connection with the girl's disappearance. A gray 2007 BMW was recovered as part of the investigation.
During a news conference earlier today, the Sullivan County Sheriff's office confirmed North Carolina officials are searching a pond in Wilkes County in connection with the case. Neither the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation or the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office requested the search. The exact nature of the search was not disclosed.
