On February 19, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation issued an AMBER Alert for 15-month-old Evelyn Boswell. Read the timeline of her disappearance here.
On Friday, February 28, officials searched a mobile home in Blountville after a tip. The home's occupant, Zachary Warfield, said investigators were on site for about 30 minutes. "Pretty much TBI just showed up and they were investigating the trailer here for the missing child."
Warfield said officials searched inside the home and outside. He pointed out a hole in the bottom of the house where he said investigators collected evidence.
"They pretty much searched all throughout my house. But they didn't really take anything from inside the house they just found whatever they did under the house," said Zachary Warfield.
Warfield said he believes Evelyn and her mother Megan Boswell lived at the trailer for "quite a while."
The mobile home park is located near Sugar Hollow Road and Buffalo Road.
Online property tax records for Sullivan County list that the trailer park, Lakeshore RV Park on Sugar Hollow Road, is owned by Tommy Boswell Jr.
Tommy Boswell Jr. is the brother of Megan Boswell, Evelyn’s mother.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation confirmed their agents were at the scene executing a search warrant.
At around 4 p.m. on February 28, TBI said there had been more than 750 tips about Evelyn, but no sightings.
