An AMBER Alert has been issued and a statewide search has been launched for a 15-month-old girl from Tennessee who has not been seen since last December.

The Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office began investigating the disappearance of Evelyn Mae Boswell on Tuesday, after the Department of Children’s Services reported the child as missing.

Evelyn’s last sighting was two months ago, on December 26, 2019, according to a press release from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

The toddler’s mother and father are involved in the investigation, and officials are trying to determine why Evelyn was not reported missing earlier, WCYB reported.

The child’s biological father, Ethan Perry, who is an active-duty US Army soldier stationed in Louisiana, posted a brief Facebook update addressing his daughter’s disappearance on Wednesday: ‘I’m currently working with authorities trying to find Evelyn. I can’t say much more than that at the moment.’

Sheriff’s Captain Andy Seabolt said at the outset of the investigation, Evelyn’s case did not meet the criteria required for an AMBER Alert, but after conferring with TBI, the alert was issued on Wednesday, reported WJHL.

Officials worked through the night and into Thursday following on leads as part of the search for the toddler.

‘Right now we’re not sure of her exact location,’ Seabolt told the station WCYB. ‘It could be anywhere from what we know.’

Evelyn’s mother, Maggie Boswell has not spoken out publicly about the toddler’s disappearance.

Her most recent post, dated November 3, 2019, consisted of a photo of Evelyn sitting on a bench; the same image is now being used by TBI to look for the toddler.

Boswell welcomed Evelyn on November 21, 2018, becoming a teen mom.

In September 2019, she posted a touching tribute to her baby daughter, then aged 11 months: ‘I’m not the best mom in the world, but I try so hard for this little beauty. I can’t even explain the love I feel for her, and i know she loves me too.

‘Lately my lifes been really sucky but she’ll come reach for me and say “mom mom” and my heart melts and I’m reminded of her unconditional love. You can say whatever you want about me being a young mom, but I promise you my life is so much better with this angel.

‘My life wasnt ruined when I had her, she gave me a purpose and a reason to wake up everyday and to better myself. Theres no love like the love from your child!’

Neither Boswell nor Perry have been accused of any wrongdoing in connection to the disappearance of their daughter.

Boswell was a teenager when she welcomed Evelyn in November 2018. Evelyn is described as 2 feet tall and weighing 28lbs, with blonde hair and blue eyes
