The mother of missing baby Evelyn Boswell has been arrested on charges of providing false information to Tennessee law enforcement authorities, the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office announced.
"Every time we talk to her, her story changes. Every single time," said Sheriff Jeff Cassidy Wednesday at a press conference. Those false statements have "delayed and impeded" law enforcement's investigation, he said.
Megan "Maggie" Boswell was taken into custody Tuesday night after several hours of questioning at the sheriff's station. She is being held in lieu of $25,000 bail, officials said.
Maggie's 15-month-old toddler, Evelyn was not reported missing for at least two months, officials said. An Amber Alert was issued last week for the blond-haired, blue-eyed child.
