According to her father, Wesley Mathews, 3 year old daughter disappeared at 3 a.m. on Oct. 7 while standing in an alley about 100 feet from their home in Richardson.

Mathews, 37, told Richardson police he put his daughter in timeout in the alley because she refused to drink her milk.  He is charged with injury to a child which is a felony. His bond has been set at $1Million USD.

But as the investigation progressed the child’s mother was also arrested and charged. A restaurant server reported that the couple took their biological daughter to dinner at a local restaurant and left their adopted toddler alone at home.

Wesley Mathews – Search Warrants by Syndicated News SNN.BZ on Scribd

Police filed dozens of search warrants for the family’s home and cars, one of which left the home between 4 and 5 a.m. Oct. 7. According to WFAA-TV (Channel 8), they retrieved 47 items, including blue string and “dark, hairlike fibers,” a pink blanket, a pink T-shirt, and a wooden fork and spoon set hanging on the wall. They also took the washer and dryer — significant because Wesley Mathews told police he did laundry in the early morning hours when his daughter vanished.   

Mansfield police and the Johnson County Office of Emergency Management used drones to hunt for clues, combed a field and creek near the family’s home, and used DNA swabs on its Acura MDX. Police say that is the vehicle that left the house the night the girl vanished, a detail Mathews did not disclose to them. 

The FBI, U.S. Marshals, search dogs and volunteers canvassed the area around the Richland Meadows neighborhood.  Suspicion among the volunteers fell on the family.
