Police in Texas say they have found a body while investigating a case of a three-year-old who went missing earlier this month after her father sent her out of their home at 3am as punishment.
Law enforcement officials recovered the body from the narrow 75-foot long culvert, underneath a road near a railway track in Richardson on Sunday, reports The American Bazaar daily.
Sherin's father, Wesley Mathews, told police he left the little girl under a tree near their at around 3 a.m. because she refused to drink her milk. He had gone out to check for Sherin 15 minutes later and found her gone, he said.
Child protective services removed Wesley Matthew's 4-year-old biological daughter and placed her in state custody after Sherin disappeared and he was arrested.
Wesley Mathews, the foster father of the missing girl, was arrested on a charge of abandoning or endangering a child.
He has since been released on a $250,000 bond.
The body was found in a tunnel about half a mile from her home on Sunday.
Richardson police held a news conference Sunday afternoon.
Police weren't alerted about Sherin being missing until five hours later.
Dallas News reported that Sherin was malnourished and did not have the language skills of a typical 3-year-old.
"I think the community needs to heal, but more than anything, she needs to be at peace", Vemula says.
Investigators combed Sherin's neighborhood and surrounding area with K-9 teams and helicopters and executed a search warrant at the Mathews' home on October 10, CNN reported.
An Amber Alert was issued for Sherin after she went missing, but it was discontinued the following Monday.
A CPS hearing set for Monday morning for the Mathews' biological 4-year-old daughter, who was taken away from the home and placed in state custody after Sherin's disappearance, was postponed until November 13.
