RICHARDSON, Texas — Four days after 3-year-old Sherin Mathews is reported missing, much of the attention Tuesday was on the home.
In the afternoon, an attorney from McKinney, identified as Gregg Gibbs, spent close to an hour at the home. The attorney had no comment on who he was representing or whether he was representing anyone.
Shortly after 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, officers executed another search warrant. It started with a few Richardson officers walking in and out of the front door.
Her father, Wesley Mathews, was the last person to see her. He faces charges of child endangerment and has since bonded out. A friend of the family says Wesley and his wife were not in the home.
Just before 7 p.m. FBI agents had arrived. More than a dozen members of the Evidence Response Team met on the front lawn. For the first time in four days, crime tape surrounded the home, including a portion of the alley behind their home.
One FBI Evidence team moved inside the home and another team stayed outside. They canvassed the front yard thoroughly. Agents walked side by side looking down on the front lawn.
