    TX - Sherin Mathews, 3, Richardson, 7 Oct 2017 #2



    Sherin Mathews, age 3 was reported missing on October 7, 2017 sometime after 8 am.

    Sherin is 3 feet tall and weighs 22 pounds with brown eyes and black hair.
    Last seen around 3am in the 900 block of Sunningdale in Richardson Texas, around 3 a.m. Last seen wearing a pink top and black pajama bottoms.

    Her father told police he last saw her at around 3 am when he instructed her to stand by a tree about a 100 feet from her residence/property across an alley way as punishment for not drinking her milk. He claims when he went to fetch her back in around 15 minutes later she was nowhere to be found. He told them he decided to do some laundry and wait until daylight to look for her further.

    Her parents report she has developmental delays, low weight/eating issues, and limited verbal skills. Sherin's 4 year old sibling has been removed from the home and her father has been charged with child abandonment and child endangerment based on the information he provided. The residence was recently searched with boxed items removed by LE.

    ADMIN NOTE - WHERE DO THINGS STAND HERE, TODAY, IN THIS MOMENT?

    Mom has not been named suspect or POI by LE nor has she been charged with any crime. Parents have retained counsel and parents are said to be no longer speaking with police:
    Sherin’s parents are no longer speaking with police and have retained attorneys, Perlich said. Sherin’s mother was asleep when Mathews told Sherin to go stand outside and wasn’t aware that he’d given her daughter those instructions, Perlich said. [Sgt. Kevin Perlich, a spokesman for the Richardson Police Department.]

    Whoever was saying they have a snazzy house and everyone must have security cameras etc-
    Richardson isnt the best area. They probably live in one of the nicer neighorhoods but there is a lot of crime in that city/area as well.

    There is crime, but I would not say "a lot." There are extremely nice area of Richardson. I loved where we lived. My in laws live in a beautiful, extremely wealthy neighborhood. (That I could never afford.) there are parts that aren't that nice, but it's much safer than neighboring cities.

    I think he was arrogant enough to think this was a reasonable explanation that wouldn't be questioned. "Look at what a good father I am, I provide discipline to my child, it's her fault she got in trouble, her fault she had to be taken outside, her fault she disappeared."

    As for why they'd adopt a special needs female...does she possibly belong to a family member?

    I grew up in Garland, so I'm familiar with the area. Richardson has definitely went downhill over the years, however it's still a pretty nice house.
    I think so many people also have DIY or inexpensive wifi camera's and Ring installed on their houses these days, there could definitely be something LE has uncovered, but not revealed to the public.

    I think there are a few beautiful neighborhoods in Richardson but my husband worked there and people were constantly stealing the copper from the buildings, break ins nearby....just my experience.

Did he take her that far from the house and tell her to stand there or are we to believe he pointed out the tree, in the dark, and told her to walk over there by herself? And no one heard a child crying? No one heard a man's voice when he was telling her where to go? The neighbors have stated they heard nothing. Then he doesn't call the police until 5 hrs later to report her missing. That's quite a story. But here's my question: If he did something to her (and it's hard for me to fathom that he didn't) why not call the police at 8am and say he just got up, the door was ajar and she was gone---must have wandered out of the house while they were sleeping. Why this bizarre story?
    (Bringing this over from Thread 1.)

    Good question. If his story is made up (and it is hard to see it as otherwise), I am also wondering about his admitting that he did laundry at 3:15am instead of searching for her. Was he concerned that somehow they'd discover the washing machine had been run in the middle of the night, so he'd have to weave that in to the story?

    It may have to do with the wife. He may not have been sure if she heard anything, or what she might say under pressure, so it may be that he felt compelled to cover his bases and offer some reason for the noises she may have heard during the night. Just a thought...

    It's hard to believe they wouldn't have their own home security system of some sort, based on the looks of their nice house in a moderately high crime area. I also think that time gap 3am-8am (if indeed correct) was possibly scrapping their own home security system, and wiping phones/laptops/home PC's very carefully.

    The majority of crime there is definitely against property, vandalism, theft, break-ins and such. There are definitely neighborhoods and businesses that are consistent targets for the type of crime you experienced. Like I said, there is definitely crime. There is guaranteed to be with being so close to Dallas and Garland.

    Still, I felt safer in Richardson than Garland, or the area of Plano I lived in. (Most of Plano is good, though.)

    Do we know where this came from? (Dad being in IT.) I've not seen it in msm, but of course there is so much I haven't had time to read!

    Yes, IMO. Guilty people explain their actions in depth because they are worried about the small details

    Is it normal for them to call off an amber alert? This is my first post on WS. This just seemed like a really odd thing to do, especially since when I did a perimeter map with an estimate of 50mph if the dad did do something, she could be anywhere within about 125 miles and/or in different states within his given time frame. If someone else took her, which doesn't sound like the case because the amber alert was taken down, she could have been 250miles from home if abducted. So yeah, just wondering if this is normal for Amber Alerts and if we know whether or not they are looking anywhere besides what we have seen in MSM around the home?

    ''When Mathews went to check on Sherin, allegedly 15 minutes later, she was gone.

    While he was disciplining Sherin, who was adopted less than a year ago, his wife was allegedly sleeping in the home and he alerted her to what had happened, Mathews told police."

    http://www.chron.com/news/houston-te...t-12269307.php

    I wonder when he alerted her to what had happened. When it happened or at 8am?

    Amber Alerts, as far as I know, expire after a certain period of time and aren't reissued unless there is a new lead.

    *Here is an article from Fox 4 News regarding the cancelled alert: http://www.fox4news.com/news/amber-a...k-of-new-leads

    "Richardson police said the end of the alert does is not an indication of the current condition of the child, rather that tips have dried up and officials can’t justify keeping the alert active. New information could reactivate the alert."
