CPS Removed Missing Sherin Mathews' Sister From Her Family On Monday

An Amber Alert for 3-year-old Sherin Mathews, of Richardson, has been discontinued Monday afternoon, but the child remains missing.

Authorities say the Amber Alert timed out, because there has been no new information in the case, but the Amber Alert could be re-activated in the future.

The search is continuing for the child, who was reportedly last seen by her father, 37-year-old Wesley Mathews, at about 3 a.m. Saturday in the 900 block of Sunningdale in Richardson.

Her father allegedly told detectives he directed the girl to stand next to a tree behind the fence at their home after she wouldn't drink her milk. The tree is across an alley from the home.

Mathews reportedly returned to get his daughter about 15 minutes later and discovered she was gone, according to an affidavit.

The man was arrested Saturday on a charge of abandoning or endangering a child, and he was released from jail Sunday night on a $250,000 bond.

Officials with Texas Child Protective Services removed the toddler's 4-year-old sister from the family Monday and placed her in protective custody as police continue to search for the missing child. NBCDFW
