NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The mother of Evelyn Mae Boswell has given “inaccurate” information in the case, which has sparked a statewide Amber Alert, WTVF reported.

Sullivan County Sheriff Jeff Cassidy said the child’s mother is cooperating with the case but some of the details she provided aren’t adding up. Boswell hasn’t been seen in two months but she was only reported missing this week.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Friday they're searching for a vehicle in connection with the case -- a gray, 2007 four-door BMW with front end damage.

It has a Tennessee tag of 3M9-6W9. Investigators believe those traveling in it have information on her whereabouts.

Cassidy said Evelyn is not believed to be in the car but that person may have information.

When asked if he thought she had been kidnapped, Cassidy replied "I don't disregard anything that has happened, I just hope and pray she's alive.”

Cassidy added that finding Evelyn is their main concern. So far, they’ve received some 200 tips in the case.

Anyone with information on where the little girl could be was asked to call the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office at 423-279-7330 or the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
