A body discovered Sunday near a road "is most likely" Sherin Mathews, a spokesperson for the Richardson Police Department told reporters. "The process of reviewing evidence both digital and physical, as well as witness statements is a time consuming process and we ask for patience as we make progress", the earlier police statement said.
For weeks now, complete strangers have been dropping off gifts for the missing three-year-old at the spot behind her house where her father told police he last saw her Saturday Oct. 7 at 3 a.m. Police determined the family vehicle was missing from the Mathews residence between 4:00 am and 5:00 am the day Sherin went missing.
The affidavit mentioned that the father was not too anxious and did a load of laundry and waited until after sunrise to report her disappearance to police. He was arrested and charged with felony endangerment to a child and was placed on electronic ankle monitoring and surrendered his passport as a condition of making bond on October 9.

He then whisked her to 21 Royal , where they celebrated with their families. "No, you're supposed to marry me", responded one fan. The 54-year-old actor popped the question to his girlfriend of almost two years, Caitlin McHugh , over the weekend.
Reports state that the investigators have notified Sherin's parents of the body.
Attorney Bree West, who is not involved in the case, said per Fox News that, although this was standard procedure, certain confiscated items such as a blue string, dark hair-like fibers and vacuum contents, stood out.
According to the arrest affidavit, Wesley Mathews also told police he knew coyotes had been seen in the area. The cause of the death has not been identified either. They have conducted multiple searches in different areas, some involving law enforcement drone task force and K9's.
Dallas News reported that Sherin was malnourished and did not have the language skills of a typical 3-year-old. He waited until 8:00 am to report her missing. She was ordered by her foster father, Wesley Mathews, to stand outside at around 3:00 am after not finishing a meal, and vanished.
