There have been no new developments in her case according to WFAA reporter, David Goins. The arrest affidavit states: "He directed his daughter to stand near a large tree at 3 a.m. because she wouldn't drink her milk".

Mathews told police he saw coyotes in the alley where he left his daughter. The family reported her missing almost five hours later, at 8 a.m. Saturday, KXAS reported.

Matthews' 4-year-old was placed in foster care, the Dallas News reported. Police said she was extremely malnourished when the family took her in so it wasn't uncommon for her to stay up late to eat to try and increase her weight.

An Amber Alert was issued for the girl Saturday afternoon and continued Monday afternoon.

Wesley Mathews was arrested Saturday for abandoning or endangering a child.

Eleven people were hurt in the collision although none of their injuries are believed to be life threatening or life changing. The crash occurred around 2:20 p.m. outside the London Museum of Natural History, a popular tourist destination.

He posted bond and was released from jail on Sunday. The family vehicles also have been seized, and are being searched for evidence. Sgt. Perlich indicated that police were trying to pick up Sherin's scent or locate items of her clothing - anything to suggest where she might have gone.

She is described as Asian and was last seen wearing a pink top, black pajama bottoms and pink flip flops. The couple had a daughter, a year older than Sherin.

As it stands, city, county and state law enforcement are all working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation to try and find little Sherin Mathews. She has development issues and limited verbal communication skills. Cops here, some neighbors out.

Police said Mathews didn't contact authorities until hours later.
