     In Blountville, Tennessee, (Sullivan County, northeast TN) a now 15-month-old (DOB: 11/21/2018) Evelyn Mae Boswell has been missing for 2 months. She is 2 feet tall, 28lbs, with blue eyes and blonde hair. Her father is Ethan Perry, an Army service member stationed in Louisiana. Her mother, Megan “Maggie” Boswell, had custody of Evelyn at the time of her disappearance. Due to conflicting stories of who had care or where the child was... ‘A family member’ requested a welfare check from the Department of Children’s Services, whom became aware that Evelyn’s whereabouts were unknown and reported the girl as missing to the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office, in Blountville, TN. Evelyn entered the database on February 18, 2020 as a missing child. Officially entering the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children on Feb. 19, 2020. Her last confirmed sighting was reported as December 10-11, 2019 wearing a pink tracksuit and pink shoes. Over two months elapsed time between the last known interaction and the date Evelyn was reported missing. It is reported that both parents are cooperating with the active investigation. There is an active Amber Alert out for Evelyn Mae Boswell as of Feb. 19, 2020 as well as a BOLO as of Feb. 21, 2020 for persons of interest leading to information on Evelyn in a 2007 silver BMW with front fender damage: Tennessee tags 3M9-6W9.

     I will be posting updates as new information is released in the Updates section at the bottom of this petition. 

     I am petitioning for Tennessee lawmakers to adopt Caylee’s Law: Florida, 2012, HB37— Knowingly and Willfully Giving False Information to a Law Enforcement Officer; Provides that it is third-degree felony for person to knowingly & willfully give false information to law enforcement officer conducting missing person investigation involving child 16 years of age or younger with intent to mislead officer or impede investigation if child suffers great bodily harm, permanent disability, permanent disfigurement, or death. (https://www.flsenate.gov ), on the rise of this bizarre, tragic case of a missing toddler girl not reported for 2 months— Dec. 10-11, 2019 to Feb. 18, 2020. Caylee’s Law is named after the 2011 homicide victim, Caylee Anthony, whom’s mother, Casey Anthony, was acquitted of her murder due to the elapsed time in reporting and missing information, sparking the law change. More information about Caylee’s Law that is currently enacted in specific states here: https://www.cga.ct.gov/2012/rpt/2012-R-0130.htm 

    Sheriff Jeff Cassidy of the SCSO stated in the news conference video available at https://www.WJHL.com , “We’re not disregarding anybody as a suspect at this time (5:54)... The mother, [Megan “Maggie” Boswell], has been cooperating, but some of the information she has given us has not been accurate (6:42)... During our interviews, her stories aren’t leading up to stuff that we went out and checked on, video surveillance, eyewitness testimony, lot of her information hasn’t been accurate (7:02).”

     I personally believe this child to be in danger due to the honesty of the disbelief of law enforcement with the custodial mother and due to the elapsed time of reporting plus missing information. The same situational instances are seen in the earlier 2011 Casey Anthony case.

     With Caylee’s Law in place in Tennessee, these unanswered questions and show of missing or false information will no longer be tolerated or acceptable on the behalf of the missing. The person responsible for the child at the time of the disappearance would be held accountable if the guardian withheld or falsely claimed information including failing to report the child missing. 

    Two months is too long. Where is Evelyn Mae Boswell?
