An Amber Alert for the girl remained active on Monday. Without a suspect description or vehicle, the alert system was discontinued, according to law enforcement in Texas.

The little girl has not been located. They wouldn't say how they are reconciling information put out by police and the man they went to church with. The tree is across an alley from the home. They also noted that the back of the home faces train tracks. In spite of the darkness, her father said he was disciplining his child over the milk she refused to drink.

Sherin went missing after her father allegedly told her to stand by a tree near an alley outside their home in Richardson as punishment for not finishing her milk, Perlich was quoted as saying by the Houston Chronicle.

Sherin Mathews is three years old, three feet tall, and she weighs just 22 pounds. "If we didn't find her, I don't know how to put a timeline on that, but it certainly wouldn't be five hours".

The small girl, who was last seen wearing black leggings with a pink shirt and pink sandals, has not been seen since then.
