Chennai: A 3-year-old adopted daughter of a Keralite couple in United States has gone missing after she was reportedly punished by her father for not drinking milk. In an affidavit, Wesley told the police that he knew about coyotes being spotted in the alley where he left his little girl. After leaving her alone for an estimated 15 minutes, Mathews reportedly told Richardson police that he went back outside to the area by the tree at 3:15 AM.
The girl, who is developmentally disabled with limited verbal skills, was allegedly told by her father, Wesley Mathews, to stand next to a tree near an alley outside their home as a form of discipline for not finishing her milk. Some of those partners include: The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, Search One - Rescue Team, F.B.I., U.S. Marshals, The Texas Department of Public Safety and various local police departments.
Mathews was arrested Saturday on a charge of abandoning or endangering a child. He's since been released on a $250,000 bond.
Sherin was last seen October 7 wearing a pink top and black pajama bottoms.
"Sherin stands approximately 36" tall and weighs about 22 pounds.
An Amber Alert has been issued for a 3-year-old girl authorities say may be in grave or immediate danger. Since then, the child has been missing.
Sgt. Kevin Perlich told WFAA that police weren't called to the scene where she was last seen until after five hours.
Meanwhile, Mathews' church friends are also helping the couple in finding their daughter by distributing fliers in the neighborhood.
The Richardson Police Department believe Sherin Mathews, 3, was taken.
The Amber alert for the case was discontinued because of lack of leads. That's the question we want answered as well.
