Police Say Missing Girl's Parents Being Uncooperative

Police Say Missing Girl's Parents Being Uncooperative

It's been six days since three-year-old Sherin Mathews went missing Saturday morning as many questions left unanswered.

Agency reports quoting USA media reports said the Federal Bureau of Investigation searched the home of the child who is missing since Saturday when her foster father reportedly sent her outside around 3 am as punishment for not drinking her milk. "I checked on Sherin at about 3:15 am and found that she is gone", said Mathews. Sherin's mother, Sini Mathews, has not been charged with any crime. An Amber Alert was issued and then later canceled due to lack of new information, for the girl, identified as Sherin Williams.

Police say the girl's father, 37-year-old Wesley Mathews, told detectives that he told Sherin to stand by a tree about 100 feet from the family's home because she would not drink her milk.

The girl's foster mother was reportedly asleep when Sherin went missing and she was unaware of what Mathews was doing.

Her father, Wesley Mathews, was arrested Saturday on a charge of abandoning or endangering a child and was released from custody late Sunday after posting $250,000 bail but is required to wear an electronic monitoring device and surrender his passport as part of the conditions of his bond.

The missing child had developmental issues and has limited verbal communication skills when compared to a typical 3-year-old in the US, Sergeant Perlich added.

The father didn't notify police that his daughter was missing until about five hours later, said Sgt. Kevin Perlich.

"Why was the last sighting at 3 o'clock and the parents not call us until after 8 a.m". "As far as why she was out there, how long she was out there, that's the questions we have for the parents". She is said to be around 3 feet tall and weighs 22 pounds.

The vehicles, cellphones, and laptops of the parents of Williams have been seized by authorities. The girl also suffered from developmental disabilities, making it hard for her to communicate.

The Mathews family adopted Sherin 2 years ago from an Indian orphanage.

Sherin, an adopted child from India, would wake up in the middle of the night, Mathews said.

Police confirmed that the child was much smaller than other kids her age, and that it was common for her to eat several times each day and night in an effort to put on some additional weight.
