No new charges were announced at this time.Megan Boswell, and two others, were previously arrested in connection to her disappearance.Megan Boswell, 18, was charged on Feb. 25 with one count of false reporting.

The sheriff’s office said those in the gray BMW were believed to have information regarding Evelyn’s whereabouts.Cassidy said last month that Megan Boswell had been cooperating, but she and other family members provided conflicting statements and changing stories.“Every time we talk to her, her story changes,” Cassidy said at a press conference last month. “And I’m serious when I say that. Every single time.”Evelyn was last seen wearing a pink tracksuit, pink shoes, and a pink bow on Dec. 26, 2019. She was not entered as a missing child until Feb. 18. An AMBER Alert was issued the next day.Prior to Friday’s discovery, authorities said they had received more than 870 leads in the case. Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
