2 arrested in NC after BMW linked to missing girl in AMBER Alert is found


WILKESBORO, N.C. (WATE) — Two Tennessee residents were arrested Friday by North Carolina law enforcement after authorities found a car they say is linked to an on-going Tennessee AMBER Alert search for 15-month old Evelyn Boswell.

William McCloud, 33, and Angela Boswell, 42, were arrested and charged with Possession of Stolen Property. Both McCloud and Boswell are residents of Tennessee.

According to the Wilkes County Sheriff’s Office in North Carolina, on Friday, deputies with the Wilkes County Sheriff’s Office located a vehicle involved in an AMBER Alert in the Shepherds Crossroads Community of Wilkes County.

The vehicle, a 2007 BMW, had also been reported stolen and was located and recovered. The occupants, William McCloud and Angela Boswell were arrested and charged.

Evelyn Boswell is still missing, however.

Officials said she was last seen on December 26, 2019, but was not reported missing until February 18.

Tommy Boswell Sr., the grandfather of Evelyn Boswell, said he has not seen her since Thanksgiving.

“I don’t know what happened, but I’m the one who called DCS and got this started…I ain’t slept nights, I’ve cried like a baby. I just want my grandbaby to come home,” Boswell Sr. said.

In a news conference Friday afternoon, officials with the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office said Evelyn was last seen on December 10 or 11 by a babysitter.

Boswell was wearing a pink tracksuit, pink shoes, and a pink bow when she was last seen. She has blond hair and blue eyes.

The Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations are investigating the AMBER Alert and this investigation is on-going.

The TBI said late Friday night that at this time, no charges have been placed in connection to the AMBER Alert.
