BLOUNTVILLE, Tenn. (WSOC) -- Remains found earlier this month in Tennessee have been confirmed to belong to 15-month-old girl Evelyn Mae Boswell.
Officials discovered her remains after a 17-day search across three states for the missing toddler. An Amber Alert was issued more than two weeks ago, but authorities have said she hadn't been seen since at least December.
The remains were sent for autopsy. Authorities acting on a tip found the remains on a property in Blountville that is owned by a relative of Evelyn's mother, the sheriff said.
