THE BODY of an infant found surrounded by toys and clothes in Tennessee has been confirmed as the missing Evelyn Boswell.
The 15-month-old, who was reported missing back in February, was found under an outhouse on her grandfather's property.
The little girl was wearing the "exact clothing" her mother Megan Boswell, 18, said her daughter was in when she went missing.
Other clothing, diapers and toys that would have belonged to the child were also found on the property but the official identification only came on Wednesday.
"We have a sad update to pass along in our ongoing search for answers in the death of 15-month-old Evelyn Boswell. Remains found on have been confirmed to be those of the little girl," the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation announced.
The toddler’s body was found in a building on a property off Muddy Creek Road in Sullivan County last Friday and court documents indicate that the property is owned by Evelyn’s maternal grandfather, Tommy Boswell Sr.
The discovery came after a 17-day search across three states and several tip-offs.
The little girl had not been seen by some family members since mid-December but was not reported missing by her mum, Megan, until February 18.
Megan Boswell, was charged with filing a false report in her daughter's disappearance and has been held in the Sullivan County jail.
The property where Evelyn's remains were found was the same property where Megan had been living with her daughter until late last year.
Last month, Sullivan County Sheriff Jeff Cassidy spoke of his frustration with the investigation because the missing child's mother has changed her account of what happened to Evelyn on multiple occasions.
"There's not really much that we can answer due to the irrelevant information from Megan," he said at a press conference.
"Every time we talk to her, her story changes."
The grandparents of the tolder have amassed a lengthy list of criminal charges in the past two decades.
Angela Boswell once allegedly stabbed Tommy Boswell Sr in the neck with a pen per court records, while Tommy Sr admitted to kidnapping his wife and was charged with attempted murder for running over one of his estranged wife’s lovers with his truck.
