Child’s body found in Richardson is ‘most likely’ missing 3-year-old Sherin Mathews

Dallas, TX  –  Less than a mile from the Richardson home where a missing 3-year-old was last seen two weeks ago, officials on Sunday discovered the body of a young child.

Police have not yet confirmed whether the body is that of Sherin Mathews, who has been missing since Oct. 7, but they indicated they have no reason to think it is a different child.

The medical examiner will determine the child’s identification and cause of death.

“The indications are that it is most likely her, however, we have not had positive ID.  So until we have a positive identification we are not going to say it is Sherin,” Sgt. Kevin Perlich said.

The body was found about 11 a.m. in a culvert near East Spring Valley and South Bowser roads, east of U.S. Highway 75, with the help of search dogs.

As the investigation continued to unfold, more and more stuff came to [the] surface and we followed up on that,” Perlich said.  “It led to the search of that area with canines, and that’s how we came across the body.”

The area was blocked off as a crime scene as police waited for the FBI response team to process the area.  Late Sunday afternoon, a sheet-covered stretcher was loaded into a waiting van.

Sherin’s parents have been notified of the discovery.

The girl’s adoptive father, Wesley Mathews, was charged with abandoning or endangering a child after Sherin went missing.  He was released from jail after posting bond and was required to wear an electronic monitoring device and surrender his passport.

No additional charges have been filed.

During a court appearance Monday, Sherin’s parents learned that their biological child, a 4-year-old girl, will remain in foster care for another three weeks while Wesley Mathews looks for a civil attorney.

Judge Cheryl Shannon has set a custody hearing for Nov. 13.
