Houston: Police in the US on Sunday discovered the body of a child, which they say is ‘most likely’ of a three-year-old Indian girl who went missing two weeks ago.
Sherin Mathews, who has developmental issues and limited verbal communication skills, was last seen outside her family’s backyard in Richardson city in Texas on October 7 after her Keralite father reportedly upbraided her and sent her alone outside late at night as punishment for not finishing her milk.
The Richardson Police announced that they discovered the remains of a child in a tunnel beneath a road, expressing apprehension that it was ‘most likely’ of Sherin.
They, however, did not confirm the identity.
The body was found in a culvert beneath a road around 11 am (local time) with the help of search dogs, about half a mile from the house of her adoptive parents Wesley and Sini Mathews.
