‘Parents of missing Indian toddler want other child back from authorities’

Houston: The Indian-American parents of the missing 3-year-old adopted Indian girl are expected to appear in a court tomorrow to fight to try to get back their other child, US media reported. The mysterious disappearance of the Sherin Mathews from her home over two weeks ago led to the Child Protective Services (CPS) removing the 4-year-old biological girl from the home of Wesley Mathews and Sini Mathews, CBS News reported. The CPS says it’s a standard custodial hearing, as the parents ask a judge to let them bring their biological daughter home in Richardson city in the US state of Texas. The CPS has previously said it had been involved with the Mathews prior to Sherin’s disappearance, but refused to say for which child and why they were called in. The father, Wesley Mathews, was arrested and charged with child endangerment after he told police he left his adopted daughter, Sherin, alone outside their home at 3:00 a.m. October 7. Wesley, 37, told Richardson Police he made Sherin stand by a tree about 100 feet from their home as punishment for not drinking her milk. (Agencies)
