Three-year-old NRI Girl Goes Missing In the US after her Father Sent Her Outside Home For Not Drinking the Milk
A Three-year-old girl in suburban Dallas is missing after her father said he punished her for not drinking her milk by telling her to stand outside by herself at night near an alley behind her home, the police said today.
Wesley Mathews, 37, has been arrested for suspected child endangerment for the treatment of his daughter, Sherin. He was taken into custody on Saturday after reporting the incident to the police authorities and has been released on bond, according to the police in Richardson, north of Dallas.
"Wesley Mathews said he directed his daughter to stand near a large tree at approximately 3 AM (on Saturday) because she wouldn't drink her milk," an arrest affidavit said.
The father told the police that he checked on his 3 year-old-daughter about 15 minutes later and she could not be found and she was gone, the affidavit said.
About five hours after sending his 3 year-old-daughter outside, Mathews called the police to report her missing, a police spokesman said.
Mathews told the police that he had seen coyotes in the alley near where he told his daughter to stand, the affidavit said.
Sherin was born in India and had been adopted by Mathews' family. She suffered from malnourishment before arriving in the United States and is on a special diet, said Sergeant Kevin Perlich, a spokesman for the Richardson Police Department.
The father of a missing 3-year-old in North Texas allegedly left his daughter alone in an area wrought with coyotes as punishment for not drinking her milk, according to charging documents.
