Dallas Mystery: Wesley Mathews' passport seized

Dallas, US: The passport of Wesley Mathews, who is suspected of child endangerment for the treatment meted out to his adopted daughter Sherin, has been seized by the police.

The move comes after the cops found crucial evidence from Wesley's car, reported Manorama News.

Wesley's wife has filed a plea to release the second child, who is under the custody of Child Protective Services (CPS) of the police department. Meanwhile, prayers are held everyday by the Malayalee community at the spot where Sherin is believed to have gone missing.

Sherin Mathews vanished on October 7. Wesley, who is a Keralite, told the police that he left her outside their home at 3 am as punishment for not drinking milk.

The special needs toddler was adopted by the Indian-origin couple from an NGO in Bihar's Nalanda last year.

Wesley was taken into custody after reporting the incident to authorities and has been released on bond, according to the police.

While the police in Richardson city in the US state of Texas are yet to make a breakthrough in the case, the FBI has seized nearly 50 items, including cellphones, laptops, a washer and a dryer from the home of Sherin.

A vigil was held for the safe return of Sherin. A priest placed a sign outside the Mathews' family home calling on the girl's parents to 'tell the truth.'

Both the Wesleys remain 'uncooperative,' according to the police.
