    TX - Sherin Mathews, 3, Richardson, 7 Oct 2017 #4



    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.]

    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 have a 3 yog myself who happens to be really tiny as was Sherin. This would definitely not be too far for my daughter to walk. However it's the walking in the dark that's hard to imagine.

    ETA:
    Culvert at E Spring Valley just east of Brick Row Dr (looking south towards Spring Valley):



    Drainage pipe dumping into side wall near this culvert:


    Spring Valley Rd above this particular culvert (I crossed the street to peek over the other side):


    Another 'under-the-road' culvert (Hillcrest Rd at Valley View Park):



    Again, the one at Spring Valley/Boswer Rd where LE made their discovery may look different than these I visited last week, but this is what is typically meant by an under the road culvert. Hope this helps.
    This looks like the drainage pipe on the opposite side of the road. I can't locate the one near the tent, but I'm still looking!

    That's considerably smaller than the culvert area I saw west of there. There's not been enough rain/water to carry her there in a torrent (if this is where they found her?). Seems rather unlikely that a coyote would happen to drop her off in there...

    JMO, IMO

    The location has been posted a few times.
    The tent seems to be over this end of the culvert (circled in red) where the other end is under the tree.

    I think this phone pic is the culvert near the blue tent? Link to show culvert and where the tent is (between wood electrical pole and tree): https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@32.93...7i13312!8i6656

    Here we go:

    Itís with a heavy heart that weíve all been called here today. Since the time Sharin Matthews was reported missing on Saturday morning October 7th, the Richardson Police Department and several other law enforcement entities have been working 24/7 to locate her.

    Today at approximately 11 a.m., during one of those search operations, the body of a small child was discovered in the area of east Spring Valley Road and south Bowser (Mowser?) (? I think thatís what he said.) Road.

    The area has been blocked off as a crime scene. We are awaiting the FBIís evidence recovery team to respond and process the area. At this time, I want to let you know that a positive identification has not yet been made. The MEís office will need to respond and take custody of the body to try to make a positive identification of the body and try to determine the exact cause of death.

    Because of this, the area being marked off as a crime scene, thereís going to be some disruption to the neighborhood. We ask those who are just concerned or bystanders to try to stay out of that neighborhood and allow those neighbors privacy.

    There is a staging are that we set up for the media. That staging area will be there at Bowser(Mowser?), Iím sorry ó at Spring Valley and Town House, just west of the location.

    Iíll take a few questions right now, but itís only going to be a very limited amount of questions Iím going to take.

    Q: (Canít her it on my little speakers.)
    A: No one has been arrested yet. We are still trying to make a positive identification on the body.

    Q: (Same. Crosstalk. Something about notification process.)
    A: Notification has gone to the parents, so that notification has been made.

    Q: Since notification has gone to the parents, is there any reason to believe it is not that girl? Are there any other reports of missing children or anything?
    A: Well the indications are that it is most likely her. However, we do not have a positive ID. So until we have a positive identification, we are not going to say that is is Sherin.

    Q: Are her parents cooperating? Have you spoken to them again?
    A: We have not done anything other than make notification to the parents.

    Q: (crosstalk) Have the police searched this area before?
    A: There are many areas that we searched. Like I said, today is just another day of continuous searching that weíve been doing since October the 7th.

    Q: (unintelligible)
    A: It was in a culvert beneath the road that we found the body.

    Q: What led you to search that area?
    A: Just as the investigation continues to unfold, more and more stuff came to the surface. We followed up on that and it led to the search of that area with K9s and that thatís how we came across the body.

    Q: How long had you been searching that property where the body was found?
    A: Weíve been searching since early this morning and they found it around 11 oíclock.

    Q: How far away was if from that home ó
    A: I donít know for sure how far that was ó
    Q: I mean, was it within walking distance for a 3-year-old?
    A: It depends upon the condition of the child.

    Q: Without going into any more details, (something about searching around the college) Was there anything found in connection there? Anything that you can tell ó
    A: As I say, as this investigation continued to evolve, there were more and more areas of interest that we had, and we continued to search those areas, eliminating them as we went along.

    Thatís all Iíve got for now, OK. Thank you all very much.

    If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck it's usually not a 3 year old doll baby walking, undetected by dogs, 1/2 mile in the middle of the night to go die in a culvert.
