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



    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.

    RECENT UPDATES:

    The search for 3-year-old Sherin Mathews continued Tuesday with police concentrating their efforts in a field near Richland College.

    ADMIN NOTE - WHERE DO THINGS STAND?

    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.]

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

    Search for missing Texas toddler narrows
    Oct 18, 2017

    On Tuesday, officers fanned out in wooded areas, along creeks and in fields including one near Richland College, assisted by police K-9s and a law enforcement drone task force.

    The field near the college is less than 2 miles from the girlís home.

    Cadaver dogs were also seen at the scene, KXAS-TV reported.

    ďDetectives will evaluate the results of today's efforts while the investigation continues,Ē Richardson police said in a Facebook post.

    I don't think it's a car seat or even a backless booster. In the one photo provided here you can see that the officer's hand has pushed in the bag and it's contents. I would think the items would need to be more pliable than a car seat which is why I was leaning towards the items being softer and lightweight.

    They are from both from the Kerala state of India. Malayalam is the most widely spoken language in the region but honestly, every Indian person Iíve known who now live in the US grew up speaking English alongside whatever other regional language they spoke.

    Yep, Iíve had kids in car seats for the last 18 years and IMO, it was not a booster. Iím wondering if it is the laundry he washed at 3am.

    I'm searching for these search warrant affidavits with no luck, but I did come across this Dallas County document for WM's EMD. Interesting stuff!

    Still catching up, but is there a map with the search areas on it yet? I can get one started if not.

    I wonder if that was the pink shirt she was supposedly wearing.

    The work school release sort of shocks me, not because he doesn't work, but because generally speaking they want to give you full house arrest, and this was likely a condition his lawyer had to fight/ask for, and IMO the last thing a parent of a missing child is thinking about is "can i go to work?" That sort of thing tends to be ammended (here at least) later on. I am now wondering if he is actually sitting at work right now like nothing is wrong minus that pesky ankle monitor GRRR

    detectives say the focus of their investigation remains the whereabouts of the Acura SUV. http://www.wfaa.com/news/local/dna-swabs-usb-drive-seized-from-suv-in-richardson-missing-girl-investigation/484289189
    I know this is just a snip of what they said, but I can't help but think shouldn't the focus be finding Sherin and if the SUV does that then great? I have to keep reminding myself it's just the wording and that they seem to KNOW the vehicle will explain it all.

    I have been trying to figure out what could possibly be in that bag since I watched it live yesterday. At first I thought the blue item was a "puffer" jacket but I doubt those are even sold in Texas. Then I thought perhaps an empty, flattened gym bag / duffle because it looked like perhaps there was a white zipper in one of the photos but after looking at a 2nd photo, it seemed to be a reflection from the sun on the clear bag. Then I thought maybe a sleeping bag or perhaps the cover/storage bag to a sleeping bag? In the 2nd photo it looks like it might have a circular orange tag or logo on it, and storage bags are often cylindrical.
    (I just tried to add comparison photos but I can't seem to figure it out. I'm on my cell using chrome and clicked to request desktop site and when I click to add a photo it will let me choose one from my gallery but then nothing seems to happen after I click on it)

    Yes. It's basic rn, but I have one going: Map

    I know the laws are different everywhere, but when my ex got bail for DV (among other heinous things) his form was similar except it didn't say no drinking or not drugs, those weren't checked because they had nothing to do with the crimes. Is it standard procedure in Texas to have those boxes checked off? I am quite genuine in this question because with my experience as a victim and seeing this I am immediately believing that a substance was found in the dad at the time of his arrest (or in the house or on his person). So I would love to know if someone knows what is standard there? I believe we have a Verified Attorney here who may be able to answer this for those of us who are from different places? Thank you!!!
