Police: Body found during search for 3-year-old put outside for not drinking milk

Richardson police say they found a small child's body Sunday during the search for missing 3-year-old, Sherin Mathews.

Sherin Mathews disappeared in the early morning of October 8 after her adoptive father Wesley Mathews put her outside their home for not drinking her milk.

The body was found around 11 a.m. in a culvert underground during a search operation in the area of Spring Valley and Bowser Road and has not yet been properly identified.

The medical examiner's office is working to confirm the identity.

The area around Spring Valley and Bowser is now a crime scene. That area will be blocked off off for some time.
