KINGSPORT, Tenn. (WTVF) — Sullivan County Jail records show that the mother of missing 15-month-old Evelyn Boswell the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office, indicates Megan Boswell is not pregnant, according to WJHL NewsChannel 11.
The jail records indicate that there were four pregnant women at the Sullivan County Jail on Monday. Maggie Boswell was officially booked into the jail Tuesday at 9:19 p.m., according to officials at the sheriff’s office. A fifth pregnant woman was booked at 11 p.m. Tuesday night.
Boswell made the claim on the same day she was arrested and charged with false reporting. She supported the statement saying, it was the reason she couldn't take a polygraph test, even though officials with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and Sullivan County Sheriff's Office say neither had asked her to take one.
It's been eight days since the AMBER Alert was issued for little Evelyn Boswell, and the search continues. However, investigators are following a new tip that claims the little girl was seen with her grandmother, Angela Boswell, and Boswell’s boyfriend, William McCloud, two to three weeks ago at a North Carolina KFC.
Both Maggie Boswell, the child's mother, and Angela remain in jail. Angela appeared before a judge in Kingsport General Sessions Court on Thursday, according to WJHL NewsChannel 11. Her next court appearance in Kingsport court was scheduled for April 30 at 9:30 a.m.
She has reportedly paid all but $1,000 of her bond regarding her charge of probation violation out of Kingsport. However, she is also facing a charge of theft of property over $2,500 in Sullivan County General Session Court in Bristol. Angela’s bond for her theft of property charge was set at $5,000 with the condition that she wears an ankle monitor if her bond is posted.
She is due back in court in Bristol on March 4.
